Title: Can I also run a second virus program at the same time?
Post by: dan_bjarnason on February 04, 2021, 11:58:41 PM

I am using Avast Security on my Mac .... can I also run at the same time a second virus fighting program  (eg Sophos) ... or will they conflict.
Thanks

Only use one resident AV at a time.

But you can use a online scanner for a second opinion
Trend Micro has one for Mac  https://www.trendmicro.com/en_gb/forHome/products/housecall.html
