I just started to use Avast and its great as its spotted a bunch of viruses my regular security didn't find. Anyway avast found 12 viruses and they appear to be all the same virus, just in a different format. They are all called "Win 32 virus", or "Win32:SearchProtect-E [Adw]" to be exact. First off, does anyone know what this virus is, what it does, etc.
The other issues are that this virus is stored mostly on another one of my virus softwares "Trend Micro Titanium Maximum Security" while another 2 are on my own local/ personal files; so could this just mean avast is conflicting with my anti virus and or personal files meaning there is no real threat, or are they infected?
The next question is then if its a good idea to have and run multiple antivirus/antimalware/antispyware etc software at once.
Thanks for looking at my questions
