Sahir, it's OK to use "two security programs" simultaneously, not antivirus programs. I mean you can go with antivirus software and a spyware removal tool. For instance, you can install Spybot Search and destroy and AVG Free antivirus and they will work together. However, if you install two antivirus applications, this may cause some conflicts. The symptoms are: extremely slow Windows startup, flagging each other as malware, etc.

Malwarebytes was written as a "second opinion scanner" and is actually designed to run simultaneously with other antivirus programs.

So yes, running two antivirus programs is normally bad. However, there are exceptions. Malwarebytes is one of those exceptions.
