Antivirus and malware at same time

Hi guys
I have Microsoft Security Essential, Windows MRT and Malwarebytes. Can I use all of these softwares for scanning my PC at the same time? Any benefits of using the all at the same time?

Re: Antivirus and malware at same time

Re: Antivirus and malware at same time

You only get problems if you run more than one AV or firewall at the same time. MSE is the only one on that list that classifies as either (in this case AV), so no worries.

Do you have a firewall?

No problem but it will work slowly due to lots of CPU usages.

Re: Antivirus and malware at same time

Why don't you stick to just one antivirus? I've never liked the idea of having more than one installed....

Only one of the programs listed is an antivirus.
