Avg 2012 & Bit Defender 2012 Running one while the other is disabled

Your best bet is to use one or the other, in the sense that 2 full time scanners of the software you mentioned, cannot be totally disabled from background running processes which can cause conflicts from system slow downs, to even BSOD. I know Bitdefender has a self protect mode which keeps it from being totally shut down, i.e. to protect it from malware shutting it down.
Your best bet is to choose one or the other, and then for a second opinion use an online scanner that will not be "installed" as it were, like ESET online Scanner, which will scan your whole HD, or Bitdefender's Quick Scan which will scan memory and start up files. There are many such out there.
You can also use one of the free malware scanners that are also the on demand type of scanner, like Malwarebytes, or Superantispyware.
Hope this helped
