It is generally a bad idea to run more than one antivirus product on the machine at the same time. The protection level doesn't accumulate when you have more than one running.

The combo will create many performance issues. I had kaspersky nd AVG together in ma laptop. I uninstalld AVG due to system performance issues.

It definitely would not….NO!

You do not need to install 2 or more antivirus on your laptop. What you need to do is to install a combination of security/privacy softwares on your laptop to protect it.

An antivirus will only protect you from viruses and some rootkits or malware.
