Hi there, I'm working on my friends computer and she has the Mcafee Security center installed. I believe it came installed on her computer. I told her that my computer uses the best freeware out there and is very effective based on my experience and the experience of others on this board. Although I've installed spybot, spywareblaster, and adaware on her computer, I'd like to install AVG free AV, but am concerned about this mcafee security center. This is since I've read that you shouldn't have more than one AV product on one computer.

Should I keep this Mcaffee product and install AVG? or uninstall Mcafee. On my computer had Norton and had to use a special program to uninstall Norton. Is this the same with Mcafee Security suite? Thanks

Whether you want McAfee's or AVG that is a personal matter and totally up to you or at least your friend. But yes, you cannot have more than one antivirus program installed. McAfee's Security Suite comes with more programs than just antivirus.

If you decide to uninstall McAfee's then you could do it through "Add/Remove Programs" in Windows "Control Panel". If you tun into any difficulties then use the uninstal tools posted at the McAfee Support Forum
