It can slow the system down and cause for detection to go slower. - Some antiviruses will also require removal of a different AV before they are installed.

The antiviruses suggested are on-demand and not proactive, so its not going to conflict.

Wrong, they will actually in cases see each other as a virus and ask you to remove it. It will not ask you to remove the entire A/V but only ask you to remove the part that it sees as a virus and if you do not realize what you are removing it will destroy the A/V not a very good idea to have mulitple A/V running at the same time

I have a worse problem, I was just surfing the web when all the sudden all these pop-ups started appearing all over the screen saying viruses, trojens etc. My notebook is new I got I last Christmas and got a free subscrption to Norton Internet security. When it ran out I didn't get any new anti-virus software and know I don't know what to do. Does anyone have any information on how I can solve this problem?

Welcome to CF, but please make a new thread in the future or a seperate issue so wer'e not helping two people in a criss crossed method.

You could try downloading a free antivirus like MalwareByes Antimalware at http://www.malwarebytes.org/mbam.php
