    Switching from Norton to AVG

    We've got a computer here that I want to switch over to AVG, from the Norton AV that's currently on it. Can I simply uninstall Norton, or does it leave junk behind that'll conflict with the new AV?

    Re: Switching from Norton to AVG

    Norton products usually list a few different components in Add/Remove Programs. At the least you will probably see your Norton product in there, plus Live Update. Uninstall all of that stuff, restart the PC and then download the Norton Removal Tool and run it. It may tell you it's out of date, but it'll also provide a link to download a later version

    I recently made the same change without any problems at all.
    Be sure and use the Norton Removal Tool as Carl suggested above.
