So you have decided to change antivirus software on your computer , here is what you should do.
First make sure you thoroughly remove your current anti virus on your computer.
Your antivirus solution can be un-installed from the Programs section in your Control Panel however some remnants may remain so you need to go to the manufacturers site and look for a removal tool which will remove all remnants of the software.
I have included some links below for popular anti virus solutions.
After removal reboot and proceed to install your new anti-virus solution.
The two I recommend are :
The FREE solution : Microsoft Security Essentials – please note , I do not recommend AVG
For a paid solution ESET / NOD32 a powerful antivirus solution that does a great job without slowing your computer down or Norton , Kaspersky, Trend solutions.
Remember to stay ” infection free ” it is all about – “what you do” as the antivirus solution may not save you and remember to follow my 10 Steps For A Virus Free Computer “
