Should I load more than 1 anti-virus program?

Question

<RE>:General question not a problem:

Hey guys good show. I was a first time listener last weekend and I brought your info tips to my company work forum. I do tech support for one of the second largest mutual fund company in the world. Anyway this has to deal with a new IBM Aptiva system I bought from IBM. I was just wondering what kinds of anti-virus software ( and how many kinds) do you recommend? I have Norton on their pre-installed. I do browse alot and plan on running a upstart web company soon. What do you guys think -------> I know and easy one.....

Norton Anti-virus is just fine as long as you keep it updated Be sure to run the Live Update at least once a month DO NOT install multiple anti-virus programs Not only will it slow down your system or possibly cause Registry problems but they may see each other as a virus!
