It is never advised to have two av applications running at the same time. Many times this will causes errors. It does happen that one prevents the other from working. As alternitive and to prevent conflicting you can do this. Install and run Avast as main av, create a bootable cd and put another (dos based) av on it so you can run it from there

im not talking about running them at the same time, what i am saying is what is a good second AV to scan your system with when you are finished scanning with avast, because avast may miss some stuff that the other AV will pick up

Just run one (or more) of the online scanners. Panda, Housecall or one of the others

If I think correctly what it is, you will have a notpad.exe (this is correctly spelled) on the system. If so rename it to notepad.exe
