The common norton product is now a suite with other features. To complete the picture I add Free AVG AntiSpyware, Zone Alarm and then stop using IE and disable the preview in Outlook (all versions.) Next I use an AntiSpam product. Your choice here but I'm using Popfile.
I know there are previous posts about anti-virus software...if this has already been posted/answered, please post that link and I will go from there...
I currently have Norton Internet Security which will expire soon so I thought I'd download the AVG-antivirus.
Can I download the AVG and save it on my computer, then turn off and/or uninstall the Norton, then install the AVG?
And does the AVG protect the same way as the Norton IS? (there's probably many posts on this as well...)My understanding of the Norton IS is that is has some protection while on the internet, not just scanning the computer...
I'm just a little paranoid about not having an active anti-virus and don't want to be open to unwanted viruses while switching.
(I'm still recovering from some virus issues...whole other I suppose.)
Any direction on switching would be appreciated!
