You didn't say which AVG product you want to install. Is it the anti-virus or anti-spyware? If it is the anti-virus then you should remove Norton because you should not have more than one anti-virus installed. If it is the anti-spyware then it is okay to install this with Norton.

To remove Norton, you should use the Norton Removal Tool.

There is no need to remove AVG Anti-spyware. In my opinion it is a very good program and you should keep it. The two AVG products, anti-virus and anti-spyware, complement each other very well.

There should be no risk removing Norton (that I am aware of) apart from the fact that your computer will probably run a lot faster :thumbsup:

It shouldn't mess with your wifi config, but on the off chance that it does just post back here and I'm sure the members will help you sort it out.
