Is it advisable to install in the same PC AVG 7.5.432 and Nod 32 for Windows 95/98 - Base - Version 2.70.26? Do they neutralize each other? If I can only have one, which one do you recommend me to install? Ines

Never run two antivirus on the same machine! Jan 23, 2007

They may damage heavily your system.

The programmes you mention have both a good reputation, so any advice is difficult.

Nver use 2 AV at the same time Jan 23, 2007

It has no sense to use two antivirus. It's like if you to try to ride two bikes/motorclicles/cars together.
Instead of this please use one anti-virus (AVG is a good idea, and free), an anti-spyware tool (SpyBot Search & Destroy), a firewall (the one that it's in Windows XP or ZoneAlarm). A cleaning tool as CCleaner is also a very good idea.

which has both functions (you have just to check the box that you want Extended Antivirus databases used). Zone Alarm also is indispensible.

But indeed avoid using 2 Antiviruses on the same computer- they will detect each other as virus and you may well end up having to start from Format:C (been there, done that)icon_smile.gif
