I have many friends which are Windows users and I wont to keep my system and my flash drives virus-free for obvious reasons.
Recently, after I posted a question on Ask Ubuntu, I was encouraged to try Bitdefender for Unices. I have installed Bitdefender via command line, because it is easier. And also, I have installed Comodo Antivirus. Both of them are interesting apps and I was able to clean my flash drives. Still, I wont to try other Antivirus software as well.
So my questions are:
Can I keep both antiviruses installed (and install others too)? I know that when I was on Windows I was told that I should keep only one antivirus installed because two such software can enter in some conflict. I remember that I had once two antiviruses installed, but one of them was set on inactive. In order to scan the PC I used them alternatively, each of them avoiding the quarantine folder of the other software.
So, having in mind my Windows experience regarding these Antivirus apps, what attitude should I have when I'm on Linux? Is is OK to install several such apps (in order to use them paranoically to scan flash drives?).
And if this is OK, what settings should I have in order to avoid conflicts between them?
Should I ask them to avoid the quarantine folder as I did in Windows?
Sorry for the complex question, but I don't think is worthy to ask several tiny things when I can ask all of them considering the fact that they are inter-related. thank you in advance for your patience and explications!
