Avira Free vs. AVG free

    I have been using Avira Free but am not very satisfied with the UI. So,
    I just downloaded AVG Free in order to try it out. Both come very
    highly rated. My question is: Since you're not supposed to run two
    antri-virus programs at the same time, what do I have to do (besides
    uninstall Avira) in order to try AVG? I wonder if I just shut Avira
    down, are there still Services that continue to run? The best of both
    worlds is if I could switch back and forth easily. Any constructive
    comments are welcome.

    Get INNOBATE AntiVirus Home, its realtime scan engine can work along
    side another Virus scanner.

    Specific question, but answers can be generalized.

    So there is no risk that still having Services Started/loaded at
    System-level, e.g. [AVGIO.sys],[AVIPBB.sys] and [SSMDrv.sys], are
    hooking functions that might interfere with other AV-softwares
    desire to do the same?

    Is it not necessary to look at (disable) the Services loading,
    that are manageable from under 'Non-Plug and Play Drivers'?

    Why in the world would anyone want that POS when then they can have a quality AV product
    like Avira AntiVir ?

    Could you point me to somewhere where they actually make that claim?

    I checked the website, and they not only say realtime but "on-access" -
    I'm pretty sure this means conflict with any other "on-access" unless
    one is on open and the other is on close.

    Can you explain this here, or are you just a marketing tool?
