Question

You Tube & Multiple Programs

by moranacus / April 27, 2012 3:39 AM PDT

I got my computer fixed and it was locking up due to a registry problem.
I have to questions now.
1. Is it safe to just watch streaming videos at You Tube?
I was told that it wasn't safe to download videos from there
even though I never had a problem on my older computer.
2. I was told by the tech that worked on my computer that it's not a good idea to have 3 security programs running at the same time.
(I have the free version of Avast, Malwarebytes Pro and SuperAntispyware)
I ask this because he said that running multiple programs causes holes so you are more likely to get infected.
