How do I Delete all Norton/Symantec Virus protection before I install AVG?

Do you have a question? Post it now! No Registration Necessary.  Now with pictures!

Threaded View
My Norton Virus Protection has expired.  I heard that AVG is a great
(And Free) Anti-Virus software but also heard that having Norton AND
AVG on your PC at the same time is a big No No.  Reading up on the
matter I read that there are softwares to get rid of all the Norton
files before adding AVG.

1.    Is that true?
2.    Where can I get these softwars?
3.    Is there anything that Norton had that AVG lacks?

My PC ran perfectly for 2 years.  After the new year 2007 and Norton
expired my PC began to slow right down and continues to do so.  Every
time I do anything a small window pops up at the bottom right part of
my screen and says "Norton checking such and such a file."  That never
used to happen before the Norton software expired.

Any help would be much appreciated.  Thanks a million.

Get Symantec's removal tool.  You can try to uninstall it, but reports
indicate that uninstalling it doesn't always work.

Thanks very much Clark.  I think I have now totally removed the Norton
stuff.  AVG seems to be working just fine now.  Thanks again.
