It's probably possible but I wouldn't try it

I had enough issues when Windows Defender and Norton tried to have their services active at the same time, to the point where I disable Windows Defender's service and Windows Firewall if I use a third-party AV. I think most security software say on their own web page not to run multiple antivirus at the same time, and for good reason. Depending on how they integrate with Windows, the AVs may conflict with each other, not to mention hit you with quite a performance penalty if it happens to work.

Why would you want to run a combination of antivirus anyway?
Thanks for the quick response. I thought Win. 7 would be ok with it. I wanted more than one, thinking that if A missed a bug,then B or C would catch it. Am I wasting time? Thanks again.
