Concerning OnAccess scan? I'm not enthusiastic about this idea. And I'm
sure you won't either.
Good idea or bad.
If you use one of them on access an the other one just on demand, it
might work. But think about the following: Norton has got problems to
detect runtime packed malware, but McAfee doesn't. So if you have
running Norton on access all the time, then you check a runtime packed
malware with McAfee on access, McAfee unpacks it. So now Norton will
detect the malware, too, and they (NAV and McAfee) will conflict with
Furthermore, two av scanner installed on the same system might conflict
anyway, cause they're deeply rooted into the operating system.
