I doubt that is acceptable to run two AV's at the same time. MSE just might disable the other Av, but you should try it out because I haven't tried it.

Why would you want to do that? MSE is pretty powerful free security software.

For this post the author Mike has received gratitude : Stu

In my opinion, if you're using an illegal copy of Windows (yes, cracked means illegal), you probably shouldn't worry too much about antivirus, since the virus is already embedded in your system files and can't be removed. :)

Using hacked Windows and then asking for antivirus afterwards is like BASE jumping and remembering a parachute after you hit the ground...

@ hot_cool_nikhil

http://www.avast.com/en-gb/free-antivirus-download

http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/

Either one is a good product. I have used both and wouldn't use any other apart from these two free programs, I currently use MSE.
