I have a friend asking me to help make her laptop secure.. I'm not a computer genius I just know a tiny bit but somehow I'm a computer guy now. It runs Windows Vista and currently has Trendo Micro Internet Security Pro running on it and although it says it provides some type of anti-virus the computer gives a alert that says it isn't protected in the notification tray. When I click it and the Windows Security Center comes up, it says under Malware protection that no program is found for Virus protection.
My question is Avast, without paying for anything, better protection than Trend Micro Internet Security Pro?
If I had to install Avast with Trend Micro still on the computer would it cause a interference and freeze it up?
