K. There is a silent debate over this out there in the tech world, but I have never found a DEFINITE answer. and maybe there's not. But I want to know what people think. 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.
