Is it ok/acceptable/good to run AV scans from different appications "at the same time"????
ex: doing scans in AVG, Avast, NOD32, Kaspersky, Ad-Aware, Spybot, and MalwareBytes all at the same time.
i dont see how it is too bad of a problem (if your processor can handle that much scanning) unless they conflict with each other and/or give false-positives, or other things of that nature.

I would assume it would be ok though, as things that cannot be detected by one will probably be detected by another. If your processor can handle it, then there shouldn't be a problem.
anyway, the only double scan you can do is when you have an AV and an Antimalware.
i don't think it causes any problem for the system.
Honestly, you don't really need more than 1 virus program, and 1-2 spyware scanners. Depending on the anti-virus programs, they might not play nicely if two or more are installed on a computer at once. (IE: the two "resident programs" might not be compatable, or they might both need to use the same system files...)
