No that not good it is really bad it is not only slows down your computer it can cause major problem in your thread unite of your processor.

You always have to uninstall the first on if you want to install a new antivirus, also same about the internet security soft or any security soft. Using two or more antivirus decrease the performance of your CPU they can also cause system crash, windows file missing problem and another big problem.

You just need one that enough. If you are a new beginner I recommended you to browse internet to know farther details that may help also.

You can install two or more antivirus applications on a computer running under Mac OS X, but since all installed antivirus applications will use system resources to scan the system for viruses, the system may be greatly slowed.

Looking at windows based Operating system you cannot run two antivirus at the same time. Please check if both of them could be running at the same time. If they are, kindly turn one of them off, that is, disable either trend Micro Titanium Maximum security or Avast.

If this doesn’t solve the problem you can uninstall both the antivirus and install one by one but ensure the first one you install is disabled before installing the second one.

A third option could be checking your Hard disk storage space these two software's could be too large and the space on the hard disk is too low. Below is a list of the operating systems supported and the minimum hardware requirements.

Operating Systems Supported

  1. Windows 7 (any Edition, 32-bit or 64-bit)
  2. Windows Vista (any Edition excel. Starter Edition, 32-bit or 64-bit)
  3. Windows XP Service Pack 2 or higher (any Edition, 32-bit or 64-bit)
  4. Microsoft Windows 2000 Professional Service Pack 4 (incompatible with avast! Account)

Minimum Hardware Requirements

  1. Pentium 3 Processor
  2. 128 MB RAM
  3. 200 MB of free hard disk space

I hope this does solve your problem.
