Norton's Systemworks

Threaded View
My Norton's antivirus subscription is about to expire (as I have it as part
of Systemworks). I was wondering if it would be OK to just delete the anti
virus and Ghost parts of Systemworks and keep the other parts on there as I
am going to start using AVG Antivirus.

I just thought that with Systemworks still being a Symantec product then
would it affect AVG or would it only be a problem if I had left the Norton's
Antivirus installed.

I thought I would point out that I did ask a question similar to this before
(not on this newsgroup by the way) but all I got was you do not want to use
AVG and you want to use this or you want to use that and never did find out
the answer to the question I actually asked, as I am not really worried
about what people's choice of anitvirus software they use, just if I would
have a problem leaving some of Systemworks on my pc.

Thanks to anyone that can help.




Re: Norton's Systemworks

you should be okay to delete just the symantec antivirus program only.
reboot after that and install any other antivirus program you like. I would
go for bitdefender 10

Yes, you can just uninstall Norton Antivirus while keeping other parts of
Norton SystemWorks and no interference with other antivirus products will
occur.

AntiVir and AVG with no problems.)
