    I reinstalled it works better now.
    I have Avast now, it removed a Trojan that Avira missed,

    Glad you're sorted and it's good Avast found and removed an injection. Seems you're good to go now. I hope you enjoy using Avast.

    I use both AV's now, I feel confused though, Avira is still smashing AVAST and WD in tests and everyone is telling me to stay away from Avira :/

    I like your concept. Still using WD+VS because I like to try new programs without worrying, but I might consider your solution for a friend of mine.

    You use both AVs?!
    Besides that, the tests are not everything. An AV is more than its detection rate, you should consider performance, bloatware, etc. Avira is completely unusable for me (last time I tried it) - horrific interface and bad memory managment.

    Windows introduced a new feature, You can keep your current provider but, Windows will occasionally run WD scans.

    IS there anything bad about using both? It won't conflict/harm since its a Windows feature

    In that case no. Technically WD is not running in real time in that case, so you are only using ONE antivirus, which is a must follow rule.

    I must repeat again, if realtime WD protection is off and only periodic scanning is enabled, then you are good to go :)
