Can I also run a second virus program at the same time?
« 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

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
