I wouldn't do that if I were you.
Having two running at the same time can cause conflicts and security lapses and headaches in general. I had McAfee I got through school running with Norton and I had all kinds of problems. I'm not sure if that was the source of my problems, but I've seen several places that you just want one or the other not both. Spyware programs are a different story though, the more there the better.

There is a free version without a lot of the bells and whistles (AV, spyware, etc) of the pay version. When you installed it you should have had an option to select the full version of the "lite" version or whatever they call it.
