you have McAfee and PC tools but you have to pick one to be the main one and disable the real time protection on the other one or you can Uninstall one
Run a scan on a computer or automatic schedule a sccan to run weekly or monthly
It not advisable to run Multiple AV at the same time Commonly you have one primary that is use for real time protection but if they are telling you to disable one while the other one runs it scan.
The reason is having two on at the same time is very intense on your computer resources, conflicting, false-postive and so forth.
Commonly there is a way to co-exist with these av software by doing what you stated but its a hassle.
I dont know if you are subscribing to McAfee but there alot of Free ones the most common use is Microsoft Security Essentials but If your happy with McAfee dont change it because I am suggesting MSE.
