    Should I turn off one Anti Virus while running another

    Simply, Isn't it better to disable/turn off NAV while running Spybot. I would
    think that by running Spybot or any other Anti Virus, Adware program while
    NAV is running in the background would cause problems.

    At times some programs might conflict with each other, but, NAV & Spybot should get along. Now the "or any other Anti Virus" part, never run two AV's at the same time ! If you do something like use BitDefender (or any other AV) for an on-demand scan then NAV's resident protection should be disabled, start NAV back up after scan.

    AntiSpy programs & AV's get along with each other, unless noted by the venders...The programs 'Readme' files list such things= BitDefender & SpyBot don't like each other working at the same time
