Norton/McAfee - Windows XP/2000/ME

My Windows XP computer came with McAfee installed on it. I would prefer Norton which I just purchased. Should I take McAfee off before installing Norton or can I leave both of them on. Thanks. It's Norton 2003. -- Karen Jake's Site: [url]http://www.geocities.com/heartland/9820/jake.html[/url]...

    Yes you should not run both AV programs at the same time.

    Neither AV is on my recommended list, however, always uninstall the previous
    AV application before installing a second one. Although possible in some
    instances to get two to behave together, it's generally very bad to have
    more than one active scanning and getting the two to behave together can be
    very problematic.

    Definitely would remove McAfee. Good luck. The last time I uninstalled
    MacAfee Virus I had to reformat my hard drive. Personally I think it is
    crap also. Make sure after you remove it you search your registry and hard
    drive for anything with a McAfee related file.
