 :) My wife is running McAfee Enterprise Virusscan and Bit Defender Total Security 2009 on her laptop together.  I have two questions (a) Should she be doing this and (b) Is she doing any harm.
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Totally wrong.  :police:

She could use one AntiVirus and one AntiSpyware tool like: SpyBot S&D, Windows Defender, Ad-Aware... with real-time protection but in any case not two AntiVirus, because:

1. They drastically slow down PC speed

2. ---- interfere and "confuse "with each other and because of that they have lower protection and detection possibility


Hope this explanation help you?

Best Regards,

Samker

Well.. you CAN do that, but definetly MUSTN'T de that, because the processign power that's gonna left for the rest of the program is just about the 30%.
