BlankI have Microsoft Anti Virus, Spyware Blaster, Spyware Guard, Adaware
and WinPatrol on my system. I want to install Norton's Internet Security...

Reading the booklet, it says that I have to uninstall all my virus
protection programs before proceeding. Do I really have to do that, or can
I just install it without problems.

Thank you..
Helen

Yes. To avoid conflicts and error messages, one should uninstall any
existing antivirus program before installing a different one. One should
only have one antivirus program installed.

However, none of what she listed are anti-virus programs.

So Anti Virus is not an Antivirus software? It appears after the word
Microsoft and before the comma on the first line - I thought it would be a
dead giveaway.

One CAN have more than 1 AV installed ! The thing is to only have 1 that is
up and running as the active-startup AV. One runs the others on demand.
But yes, precaution & preparation during the setup of secondary AV.
