    Apart from running at 100% cpu and memory (probably), is there any issue with running say MalwareBytes, SuperAntiSpyware and Avast at the same time?

    I often run them one after the other and it is a pain waiting for them to finish, would be good to know if you could run them all at the same time.

    Thanks!

    Well as far as I know there should be no problem. However the scans will take longer. Run them one by one, or as I do. I run one the one night and the next scan the night after. That way it works while I sleep. :)

    I would not recommend it. I can see the potential for conflicts, if not during the scan then probably during removal should anything be found.

    Agreed, as well as the CPU it uses and as such your system will respond very slowly. Also your system may as well come to a halt. :doubt:
    Better scan at predefined day and time, but not overlapping. :)
    In short, not recommended. ;)
