A reader from Brighton asks "Should I be using more than one Anti-Virus program to increase my security level?  Having more than one anti-virus program examine your system for malware is much like getting a "second opinion" for a medical question...probably a good idea most of the time.  But you need to be careful how you do it...here's why.  Most anti-malware programs have two operating modes - a "real-time" monitoring mode and an on-demand scanning mode.  The scanning mode only runs when you tell it to run; by scheduling a scan to run at a certain time or starting a scan manually.  The monitoring mode is running all the time, watching for any potential threats on your computer and this is where a problem may occur if you are running more than one anti-malware program...many of them do not "play well together" and can interfere with each other or give false indications.  So the solution is to only set-up one "primary" program to do the real-time monitoring and regular scans.  Occasionally you may want to manually start another program and have it do a full scan on your system as a second opinion but when it has completed its scan be sure to exit the program to prevent any interference with your primary anti-malware program.
