I have both VIPRE Antivirus Premium and Avira Antivir Premium installed. I originally had the Avira purely for the antivirus aspect and the VIPRE as a firewall.

As things evolved, the VIPRE became more sophisticated and now I am thinking of dumping the Avira and relying entirely on the VIPRE.

Anyone got any suggestions?

Those are hardly suggestions guys...

I would stick to keeping both tbh, pretty sure in VIPRE you can just set it to not scan for virus' and just use it as a firewall (even though I use the standard Windows one).

Have to be careful when running multiple AV's as they can end up crashing into each other and displaying false positives..

Bad idea having 2 antiviruses. Stick with one only.
And had a couple of anti-spywares. Thats more importnat.

I would just use VIPRE out of those two.
