Therefore take Norton off before you install anything else.

hi i have a new computer running vista and it came with 60 days of norton security suite free. i hate norton but i have let it run while i researched the various freeware. i am ready to make the switch, but is there some guidelines i should follow when removing norton and installing programs like super anti spyware,comodo firewall, avast anti virus? are the recommendations for freeware that geeks to go provides current for vista users?
If you're concerned about being unprotected during the uninstall of Norton and installation of Avast, download the installer for Avast and save it to your desktop, then you can disconnect from the internet and do the uninstall/reinstall.
best thing i can suggest is like sari mentioned download avast then go to nortons website and download the norton removal tool just to make sure you get all of the different parts of norton taken off... then disconnect your computer from the internet and run the norton uninstaller tool then install avast..only reason i suggest the norton removal tool is because norton has a nack tof being difficult to get rid of.. thats why they made the removal tool for it... some poeple dont have any trouble with it but some just wish it didnt exist...hopefully yours works out nicely

now i dont know if avast has a firewall or not.. if not then completely ignore what i just said.. but if you turn it on and start having problems.. specifically internet connection trouble.. turn windows firewall back off...
edit: broni i like the signature.. seize the day.. xD

Avast is antivirus only program. Windows firewall must be turned on.
