Avast and Kaspersky

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
I recently got Kaspersky Internet Security 2011 for extremely cheap, and I was wondering if I could use the Internet Security and avast! free antivirus.

I know two antivirus softwares don't play nice, but will a free antivirus and internet security work?

Well, what I really wanted to know was if Kaspersky Internet security was just that, internet security. Because I don't have the internet security with Avast, since it's the free version.

kaspersky internet security is anti-virus and a software base firewall.

I have been using kaspersky for some time now. I also use malwarebytes and superantispyware. Using all 3 together has not been a issue. Not I am using the freeware vs for the later 2, so run them manually once a week.

Never use two antiviruses. It is not that they eat each other. the real problem is that they may NOT complain about the other and just disable each others functions. Or both try to firewall and make for a clogged net. Just bad idea.
