How do I do it?

Why pay when you can get just as good protection for a Home PC free and will not hog system resources?

They will tell you how. Just get out your trusty Credit Card. About £50 I think.

But why pay. I use AVG

I've used Norton for many years but I won't be renewing this year.

I finally got fed up of my PC's performance being sapped by this app.

Hi, sorry for delay in response. I have used AVG & other freeware anti-virus apps. I am asking about Norton because it came pre-installed & from what I've read removing it totally & installing other AVs is a nightmare. I'd like to play safe as the laptop is running fine.

buy an upgrade cd, pc world does cheap deals on norton products on a regular basis, but shop around too.

Cobblers.

Norton/Symantec even provide a free removal tool click here

I've successful;y un-installed Norton and replaced it with free products, with no ill effects, on several occasions.

Your laptop will be a lot swifter when Norton has been removed.

However the Freebies are for personal use, as opposed to Business use. If you do use it for business you should make a contribution which is Tax deductible.

I`ve uninstalled Norton AV a couple of days ago without the slightest trouble and have installed AVG antivirus free version, latest update.

If you renew your subscription to Norton it will cost you more than going the computer shop and buying a new version. Panda have just tried it on with me, to renew my subscription for Panda Platinum Internet Security it would have cost me a bargain at £39. I can buy it from the website for just under £7, Norton Internet Security costs just under £22 on the same website.

I've had no end of trouble with Norton. couldn't get new version yo install no matter what I tried. ended up installing AVG free. what's more as laurie53 said my pc's much faster without it!
