Question about Acer TravelMate 2300 Notebook
I recently purchased acer aspire 2920 in jan 2008.My norton free trial version has expired.
1.Do I have to uninstall it before downloading another antivirus? I know 2 antivirus should not run at the same time but since this has expired and my computer is unprotected at the moment, I was wondering if I could :- 2.download Windows Live One Care for 90 days?
3.I do not not want to uninstall it my self as I do not want to leave any remnants of norton behind.
Am just 6 months old at computers.
Would be grateful for your help.
1. Yes, uninstall before installing any other antivirus program or security suite. Your computer (and you) will be happier.
2. Once you uninstall the trial version of Norton, go ahead and download One Care. I've heard some good things about it, but haven't used it personally or seen it installed on a client's computer.
3. Symantec/Norton has made improvements to their software uninstalls. If you have a newer version of Norton installed, it should cleanly uninstall from the Add/Remove programs area. If it's older, you may have issues getting it to uninstall - leaving remnants as you mentioned. Symantec has help removing their software completely on their support site if you need help.
Hope this helps! : )
