How do I remove Symantec Antivirus?

by on October 9, 2010

Q: I have an older computer (’03) that has Symantec Antivirus. I would like to upgrade to the newer AVG program. Problem: when I try to load the program, I tells me that I should remove the Symantec Antivirus, which I can’t seem to do! How do I get rid of the Symantec?

    Also, once you have that uninstalled, I suggest you try out Microsoft Security Essentials, which is free and provides full spyware & malware protection as well as anti-virus support. I like it a lot more then AVG!
