I've had Mcafee protection for about five years but have decided to change to AVG rather than pay again for Mcafee.

Is there anything I should be aware of, before changing? I've read on DaniWeb that no-one should have 2 AV programs running at the same time, so I take it I remove Mcafee first then download AVG? I've also heard rumours that it is difficult to remove Mcafee entirely - anyone had experience of this?

I have a Dell 3000, with Windows XP 2002 home edition. The Mcafee package I use contains their SecurityCenter, VirusScan, Personal Firewall, SiteAdvisor, Anti-Spam, and Parental Controls. I also use Spybot SD.

Does their Firewall disable the Windows one? So will I have to manually turn on the Windows firewall after removing Mcafee?

Any thoughts, hints, tips or horror stories gratefully received!

Thanks in advance....

Thank you 04ayasin.
The link you posted makes removing Mcafee look easy - I hope it proves to be!
