My norton update has almost expired and want to replace it free firewall and anti-virus also would I be advised to uninstall Norton before downloading others

Yes they are compatable.

Download then disconnect from the internet, uninstall Norton then install AVG and ZA.

Only have one virus program on a computer or will lead to problems. Yes avg & zone alarm work together without problem. I have been using them for over a year now.

Not sure which Norton program you have but just Uninstalling the program will probably still leave a lot of debris on your computer. It could cause conflicts. There are many threads on complete removal of unwanted programs and I suggest that you browse around, and possibly consider a third party program to clean Norton out. I am sure there will be other readers who can guide you to the right programs and URL's. I used Registry First Aid to remove all traces of Norton Internet Security.

Many, many, readers use the Free AVG & ZA programs with complete security and satisfaction. However, some prefer the Free Sygate instead of ZA, but both have excellent reputations.
