    IMHO Just common sense. Then always have a back up image of your OS ready.

    Except that Malwarebytes is an Antimalware and not an Antivirus, so there's nothing wrong with running that setup.

    Well there's nothing wrong with that as I said. But this tutorial don't really apply to you since you're using an Antivirus and an Antimalware together and not two Antiviruses.

    They are both Anti-Virus and should not be running in real time. That can cause a lot of problems for you. You need to uninstall one of them.
    I suggest uninstalling AVG.

    Avast and Malwarebytes Anti-Malware get along just fine. You want a little more protection you can add WOT to your browsers
    Are you using a wireless router?

    After reading this I was thinking of installing Kaspersky and Bitdefender together. lol such powerful combo XDD

    But the problem is firstly Kaspersky's protection modules setup is very sophisticated and,

    Most annoyingly BOTH programs have complex driver code injection into the system as well as the registry so I will expect a very hard testing process in my Virtual Machine which is kinda a waste of time.

    Pls don't blame my naivety if you think my post is idiotic.
    (I know hardly anyone will prefer this combo)
