Is it safe to run more than one antivirus scan, at the same time?

It's a bad idea to have more than one antivirus program on your computer. They will find the definitions in each other's databases and think they've found a virus. When running an antivirus scan from the internet, such as Trend Micro House Call or Panda, it would be a good idea to turn off your current antivirus program during the scan.

It is recommended to have more than one antispyware program on your computer, such as Microsoft Antispyware, Spybot Search and Destroy, Ad-Aware, Spyware Blaster.
