I have a Comodo Firewall and AV Free Edition installed in my PC as well as installed Avira AV Free. Recently, Comodo has been detecting certain files from Avira (extension is av$) as suspected files and place it in Quarantine folder. I have submitted this to Comodo for them to look at.

Should I be worried about it or is it just something that is incompatoble between the two softwares.

You should never have two anti-virus applications installed at the same time as they can fight against each other and actually leave you less protected.

Which one shoud I give up then. I like Comodo Firewall. Should I used that one instead than using the AV firewall product they offer?

I don't think it really matters which one you use. They are both good anti-virus applications in my opinion.

That is why I am getting hard time getting one of them go. I can see that both have their advantages and disadvanages. Should a Comodo Firewall be a good combination with Avira. I am planning of disabling the Comodo AV and use its Firewall only. Do you think that would help?

Yes, if you want to keep Avira Antivirus you should disable Comodo Antivirus.

Thanks I just did that. I would just ignore what Comodo AV detected and quarantined then. Thanks you very much!

Yeah - you can ignore it. It was almost certainly a "false positive".

Recently, Comodo has been detecting certain files from Avira (extension is av$) as suspected files and place it in Quarantine folder.

If Comodo has Quarantined files belonging to Avira, then Avira may no longer be functioning properly. You need to restore those Avira files from Comodo's Quarantine.

Personally, I would uninstall Comodo's AV altogether and reinstall Avira again just to be sure.

Thanks for the advice I checked the suspected files and they are still in the folder they should be. I think comod did not move any of the files. AVIRA is working good for me since I checked and ran it and I don't see anything wrong with it.
