    If you are looking for best free antivirus then I would suggest avast! Free Home edition. It is really good one for home use. If you are looking for server based antivirus, go for Bitdefender.

    ^^ You should completely un-install avast before trying another AntiVirus.

    Installing 2 or more antivirus and keeping both active scanner 'ON' is not recommended unless untill you have a super computer. Keep anyone in 'On-access' mode. Since you have already done it, there is no problem. Remember, you should turn 'OFF' all the 'On-access' options in avast!. There will be 7 active providers in avast! including 'Network shield'. Make sure you disable all of them.
