    Symantec's CE is supposed to be used on servers. a software is not supposed to delete any files on a server automaticlly. So SAV CE just quarantine them. Yet, I believe there is a setting let you delete manully.

    I know it isn't very safe to have two AV's both running Real-Time protection but Symantec CE and Avira Antivir, seem to be getting on okay. I've downloaded a couple of ZIPped files with viruses inside and now I have Avira catch Trojans and Symantec Viruses.

    That having two AV's running both with real-Time protection, is this a good idea?
