Two different companies and two different programs.
If you want to uninstall McAfee make sure to download both Avast and AVG to your computer first.. After the program installer files are downloaded to your desktop, then uninstall McAfee from the "Control Panel/Add-Remove Programs" section. After that, download and use the McAfee uninstaller at the link below to make sure all of McAfee is gone.

Next, install ONE of the free antivirus programs you've downloaded to your computer.. Run it for a while and see how you like it. When you're ready, uninstall the first antivirus and install the second one.. Run IT for a while and see what you think. When you make your decision, use the one you like.

Hope this helps.
I have HP Windows XP2 SP2 ...broadband with Comcast and free Mcafee..I loved the old Mcafee but the new version is confusing and I don't like it. I have AVG spyware free edition..should I get the free AVG..is that good and is that the same as AVAST?? I heard the AVG is very easy to use and the downloads are quick and easy.
