2 security programs, actively finds viruses

September 28, 2010 at 04:58:11
Specs: Windows Vista
I have both the rogers online protection and Symantec(prior to purchasing rogers online). Do I need them both? My problem is rogers continously detects the trojan viruses quarantined in the Program Data/Symantec ... files on my comuter.

What can I do to turn off that annoying pop up bubble to inform me of the detection and is my computer at risk with the trojan quarantined in my Symantec files?

for starters you do not need 2 antiviruse programs as they will conflict with one another and no point in paying for such programs as there are many free programs that are work better than the ones you pay for, if your virus is quarantined you need to remove or delete it and i would get rid of the antivirus programs you have and go with either microsoft security, or avast those our currently the best free av's or you can get avg, or avair. keep me posted

I am here for a reason.

thanks. Seeing as how my work provided me with the software for my laptop, i figure i could just disable symantec instead, not fully remove it then download AVG. Rogers doesnt cost me anythng i got their basic program. I will see how this works by removing Rogers and adding the free ones...

thanks again.

larry has a good question there, let me be clear u only need one antivirus program,period,remove all but the avg, i would go with avast as it is much better than avg, and also malware bytes and some kind of antispyware which are all free to download. keep me posted

Well, It is a Lenova with Lenova care and Symantec is the security program. I removed Rogers. and Windows Defender shows me that I amm protected.
so far no conitnued problems....

Can't complain..but open to suggestions if more effective. Otherwise..I think I am good to go. I removed AVG, MALWAREBYTES,ROGERSONLINE DETECTION and I am left with Symantec & Windows Defender(i think this isnt even an actual security program )..

thanks guys/ladies :)

I do not log on to a network at work..just given a laptop to work at home as needed...temporarily...until end of contract. Do not want to make too many changes to the thing ( I am a consultant).....

Symantec seemed to work before when i connected at cafes and such....
