yeah, no WAY should you run 2 antivirus programs. some will also report the others virus definition tables as viruses as well as lock down ports, etc.

Isn't Panda an online program? Or its actually a software?
Also, if I use Panda, should I bother installing Norton then?

If you're using one (such as Norton) that scans in real-time, disable it before scanning with another program. It's okay to use two (or more) anti-virus programs as long as they aren't running at the same time.

Panda has an online scan that can be used, but there is also a version that can be downloaded to your computer for real-time scanning, like what Norton's does.
