It is not recommended that you have more than one anti virus product installed and running on your computer at a time.
The reason for this is that if both products have their automatic (Real-Time) protection switched on, then those products which do not encrypt the virus strings within them can cause other anti virus products to cause "false alarms".
It can also lead to a clash as both products fight for access to files which are opened again this is the resident/automatic protection.
In general terms, the two programs may conflict and cause system performance problems .

Using the built in Windows uninstaller isn't always successful in removing all traces of AV programs... this is where the dedicated AV uninstaller comes in.
Click the link associated with the antivirus software currently installed on your system and follow the prompts or instructions.

Once uninstallation is complete, you will need to restart your computer.
You may then proceed with installing your new AntiVirus software.
