Is it OK to have 2 antivirus programs installed? I was instructed to download CCleaner before fixing a problem on my computer. I did not realize the Free Avast downloaded with it. I previously used Free Avast but now use Lifetime Vipre which automatically upgrades without additional cost.

Generally, it's recommended to have only one running. So if you're happy with Vipre, uninstall Avast.
