There are some out there that feel they are leaving their machine unprotected during the step but I'll ask this.
How did you protect the machine on a fresh OS install since the OS didn't have an antivirus built in?
I have Free version of AVG and want to install a paid Norton program. Can I install Norton and then uninstall AVG AFTER or which is the correct order; "the chicken or the egg?" lol Most people say that a person is just lucky and taking a chance by using a FREE version of any antivirus program , and protection isn't as good as the paid version programs. I have used AVG for several years. and with all of my programs, I always make sure they are updated before any scans. I'm aware of the basics. but its quite confusing on the different opinions. thanks
