Is this true, or is it OK to run multiple scanners in the background at the same time?
With the above said last week my daughter who is running Windows XP SP3 was infected with the XP Recovery Virus. The virus wiped out her desktop icons, quick launch, start button program listing and more.
She had ESET NOD32 anti-version version 4 running in the background. She also has the free version of Super Anti-Spyware and the free version of Malwarebytes Anti-Malware installed on her machine but they are not running in the background because I thought they would conflict with ESET and each other. She does a weekly manual computer scan with the Anti-Spyware and Anti-Malware software.
In addition to my questions above, if you are not suppose to run multiple anti-virus, malware and spyware programs in the background at the same time what is the best way to protect a computer from things like the XP Recovery Virus?
My daughter has scanned and rescanned her machine with the 3 products I mention above and after the initial scans the machine is coming clean but the machine still has major issues.
Any information you can give me would be great. Thanks!
