Too many AV apps?

Windows 7 Home Premium. Intel i5 PC. I am told that I may have too many AV programmes on my PC. I list them as follows: AVG (free) Virgin Media Security. SuperAntiVirus (free) I also use Ccleaner regularly, and WinASO registry cleaner. Too many? geedad

If the Virgin security is an anti-virus then you should uninstall either that or AVG as you can only have one AV but the rest are cleaners and anti-spyware which you can multiples of.

If your paying for VMS get rid of AVG the others are OK
