I notice that a number of posters have suggested running two antivirus/malware programs, such as Avast plus Malwarebytes. I have also seen postings stating that running more that one antivirus program will cause system instability and crashes. So, my question is: can I/should I run Windows Defender plus Avast?

More about : windows defender avast

Hi :) 

Malwarebytes is NOT an anti virus program its anti spyware/malware...

All the best Brett :)

Thanks. If you are running Windows Defender and Avast together without any problems, then I will have to find some other reason why Battlefield 3 and Medal of Honor - Warfighter are crashing. I was hoping this would provide a simple solution. Oh, well...

Thanks. That's why I wrote "antivirus/malware programs" in my original post. It looks like that's what Windows Defender is as well. I thought that would exclude any conflicts between it and Avast.

Good thought, though this is a recent problem with BF3. MOHW is actually running better recently, but still crashes. What's the best way to check for graphics card temps while I'm running the game? (I realize this is a topic for another forum, but since we were talking...)
