Shortly I have to renew my security prog, I with Trend Micro PC cllin. Now do I have to uninstall the programme first or can I go on the internet pay for and download the latest prog to my desktop then
1. install the programme and it overwrites the old one.
2.then uninstall the old first then install the new prog.
This way I get the full protection of the security even through I am using XP home.
Any suggestions would be welcome I am quite happy with PC cillin

To answer your question fully; you should download whatever products you choose, then - and only then - uninstall the existing products before installing the new downloads. Any other approach will result in either a naked PC or (potentially) a screwed up PC. Especially if you choose different products.
