No comment about AVAST as a dedicated Norton man, but you must never have more than one installed at a time - this will only generate loads of false positives. Make sure you remove all traces of Norton first; click here

Avast is a good free Anti Virus.

In an ideal world - download the Avast file first, then physically disconnect from the internet (remove eithernet/usb cable if broadband) Uninstall Old Norton, Install New Anti Virus - connect to internet again, update anti virus and run a full system scan.

PS - For removing Norton -> Download and run the Norton Removal Tool - click here

and dont forget firewall and spyware protection!
assuming of course avast is purely an av program
