    Do not install more than one antivirus program. Most security software is going to install services to monitor events on your pc. Having more than one program doing this can lead to conflicts and slower performance.

    You can install a second program as long as you know how to be sure it is completely passive. This way you can run an alternate scanner manually.

    For the average user, one,  and only one, antivirus program is the way to go.
