PC-cillin _multiple firewall and virus scanners?

by jeff_aa1aa / March 3, 2005 10:21 PM PST

I have installed Trend Micro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005 on my new Dell 8400 running Windows XP.

The question I have is if it will cause problems if I run additional Firewall (ZoneAlarm) or AntiVirus software (AVG) at the same time as PC-cillin.

I have people e-mail me that use AVG and really like the feature where it gives a notification at the bottom of the message that it has been scanned useing AVG.

In a word No.

providing you create the neccessary permissions in ZA and use AVG as an on demand AV.

Not recommended to have more than 1 Antivirus and Firewall

It is not recommended to have 2 AV and 2 Firewall. You can install and use AVG & ZoneAlarm if you will disable TrendMicro PC-cillin Internet Security 2005 which has firewall and Antivirus solutions. It is because it can caused conflict and system instability.
