If you plan on installing AVG anti-virus then you will definitely have to remove Norton or else they will conflict. You can't have more than one anti-virus or firewall running.


Looks good, anything else ?

Would you recommend any of the following free personal firewalls to replace Norton's or perhaps suggest another one or should I just trust Vista's Firewall?

PCTools Firewall Plus: http://www.pctools.com/firewall/

Comodo: http://www.personalf....com/index.html

Zone Alarm: http://www.download....4-10039884.html

Comodo would be the best choice, just make sure you disable Norton and Vistas firewall first or there will be problems

Any more questions ?

The final touches:

SESSION 15

Prep: Norton Firewall/antivirus OFF, Mouse ON, Kaspersky run (1:54hr) = NO VIRUS OR MALWARE > Internet OFF

1. ControlPanel > Windows Firewall > Firewall is OFF
2. Uninstall Norton Internet Security
3. Install COMODO Firewall > Switch to Install mode
4. Install AVG AntiVirus v7.5
5. Install AVG AntiSpyware v7.5.1.43
6. Connect to Internet + Update all virus libraries

*** DONE ***

Finally, I optimized my computer and now it is performing quite well.

It looks like this topic is ready to be marked as Resolved.

Thanks again for all the advice Rorschach112.
