really didn't know where to post this, but here goes. I recently installed Norton 360 after removing the free Norton that comes with my supplier rogers. Thought the full version would run faster and boot up quicker....Not the case. Just got slower.
Now, I'm wanting to remove Norton 360 which I will do from the symantec website.
My real question is that I have Adaware installed on my system (Win XP) and I want to install either Avast or AVG for my anti virus protection. Would either of those be compatible with Adaware? If not what should I do.?

Thanks for your help!

Adaware cleans out spyware, not viruses, so it's totally compatible with any antivirus package. Of the two you mentioned I recommend AVG as it has an easier to understand interface. Also, with Avast you have to obtain a free registration key by entering your email address on their website, otherwise the program won't run. No such nonsense with AVG, you just download, install and run it.
