I realise that having multiple AVs is not recommended, but I have a specific question.
My boss supplied me with a laptop which has like 5 different AVs (some of them are more like portable "launch and scan" type AVs where they do not run all the time). The idea is that this laptop will only be used to scan USB sticks - with all of the AVs one at a time.
Now, I tried that - scanned a USB stick with each AV at a time, and I did not see any conflicts between different AVs (no viruses identified either). The laptop had good speed and no issues.
Given this result (no noticable conflict between AVs) - is it OK to be scanning USB like that?
Me personally, I don't understand what this solves - if I think that a USB is infected, I should just format it; but if it's not infected, there is no reason to be even scanning it...
