Re: Replacing Norton With Another Program

I suggest disconnecting because you don't want your system to be bulnerable while it doesn't have an anti-virus on it. The simplest way to dissconnect is by unplugging your network cable from your computer if your computer is connected via ethernet cable to your dsl modem or router. If your computer is connected via usb cable, disconnect the usb cable from your computer. If your computer uses wireless, go to start->settings->controllpannel->system. From within system go to the hardware tab then device manager. A treeview should appearwhich says things like computer harddrives, network as you arrow through it. Go to the network section and find your wireless device. Select it with the enter key then press the disable button then click ok. After installing your new anti virus, plug back in any connections you disconnected before and re-enable any devices you disabled earlier.Of course, the simplest way to disconnect your computer from the internet is by disconnecting the phone line which connects your dsl modem to the phone jack. If your phone service goes through the internet with something like vonage or another voip provider, you will temperarily have no phone service untill you re-connect your dsl modem to the phone line. hth

Really?  I need to disconnect from the Internet?  I've never done that
before.  Hmmm.  I use DSL and although I can probably figure it out, I'm
actually not sure how I would do that.

You must completely remove, through normal procedures, you're current
anti-virus program before installing another.  If you don't like the new
one, you can always remove it and put another or your original anti-virus
back.  You should Dissconnect your computer from the internet then
deactivate your current anti-virus program and finally install and activate
the new anti-virus program.

Subject: Replacing Norton With Another Program


My edition of Norton is about to expire.  I'm considering AVG or maybe
another anti-virus program.  Is there anything special I need to do
before installing and/or trying out a different anti-virus program.
Do I need a special tool to remove all traces of Norton?  Actually,
can I install the new program before uninstalling Norton?  I would
deactivate Norton, but I'm wondering if it would be easier to keep
Norton on my system in the event that I don't like the new program and
choose to return to Norton.
