i am old!
i've also just got a toshiba satellite T130 (13")with Win 7.
i could do with some advice please , it would be much appreciated.
it came preinstalled with macafee (havent activated it because ive used machines with it before and it rus slower than i can! grin>
i read up on AVG free anti virus, which now leads me to two questions, will it work ok (the avg) if i install it? and, i know macafee can be a bit of a pig to get of a pc, obviously i'll have to do that first won't i? what is the best way to make sure its gone?

thanks in advance for any replies.
p.s. treat me like an idiot please with any instuctions, as i said - i'm old! :-)

So long as you've not clicked on the icon then it should remove ok in 'programs and features (the old add/remove in XP).

Should add I don't use AVG. On a Packard Bell netbook I use Windows Security Essentials; click here
