You should not have two Anti-Virus programs on the computer at the same time. You would be better before you mess up the System to create a Image so you can restore the PC if it goes doolally. Does Norton that you have, have Ghost on the CD, as that will create a Image

Start, Control Panel, Add or Remove Programs. Uninstall the trial AV then install Norton.

Make sure that you are disconnected from the net whilst you do this.
