    You should install only....

    You should install only one anti-virus at a time because having multiple anti-viruses in your system can develop several problems. For example your system can hang up thus conflicting the working of both anti viruses. It may happen that one anti-virus product will detect the other one as virus.

    You should uninstall AVG first and then install Avast.

      A very big NO...
      You cannot have two antivirus in one.

      You will be able to install it but at the installation avast will say a sort of thing maybe like this "Avast detects an antivirus software currently installed on your etc. etc. etc." a sort of something like that.

      Try to test its quality in protecting your PC.

      I have avast as my antivirus on my pc and I can say that it is really good.

          AVG, Avast, Avira..

          I can see you really like the anti-virus software names that start with A. Just joking

          But on a more serious side, can you share with us what made you change your mind and choose Avira?

          I tried it once and I had the free version of course (they now have a paid version too). And I changed it as soon as I saw the annoying ads for the full version.

              Hi, anishniranam

              In my own experience, one capable anti-virus tool for one system would be OK enough. Installing more than one might lead to weird conflict problem.

                      Hello,
                      Having two virus scanners on a computer that needs repairing is a big NO NO. That would cause a regular working computer to be in need of home computer repair. Two anti-virus programs cannot be running concurrently on a home computer.
                      Thanks.

                        Using Two Anti Virus Programs

                        If you have two antivirus applications running simultaneously, there is a risk of conflicts. As both programs ultimately are performing the same task, if one program quarantines a virus, the other one will probably find it again, as it will not see it in a quarantine folder. Therefore, you are likely to receive false positives as the second program identifies files as dangerous that have already been disabled by the first program.

                        Thanks

                            You failed to mention how that statement is actually true

                              why you want to install 2 anti viruses. and why you think that one antivirus is not sufficient for protection so change your anti virus and use another one.
