    I am using a 6 months trial of F-Secure. I want to try KAV6.

    Can I uninstall F-Secure and after the trial of KAV again install F-Secure without losing the rest of the trial period?

    Thanks,
    Jerry

    I'd be careful unless you have something like FDISR. I did just that with the Avast trial and lost the time.

    Thanks Pete.
    I'll have to consider that. In truth, I am bored with not having a new AV to try. I like KAV 6 on my PC, and will probably end up with either KAV or Avast Home on the laptop.

    I just downloaded the trial of KAV, and am not sure when the trial starts. It may be when installed or now that I have downloaded it.

    I have tried about all the AVs that I would consider, and like KAV6 the best, but I admit I had rather have a free one if it will be secure enough. I suspect that Avast Home, Ewido, SuperAntiSpyware, UnHackMe, Win Patrol, and Snoopfree would offer adequate security.

    Thanks again for the reply,
    Jerry

    I tried to install a copy of KAV6 to trial on my laptop. I had earlier downloaded a trial copy, but never installed it on the laptop. However, evidently KAV did not know that I had not installed and I could not activate it. At least that is what I am assuming.

    I still had the install package of F-Secure, and it installed OK, and I did not lose any time on the trial period.

    I put on Avast for a day, but decided that I wanted what I consider a better AV. I will probably put KAV6 on it if the Newegg sale remains at $24.99.

    The uninstall of KAV (whatever was on the computer), Avast, and F-Secure went without incident.

    So I had wondered if I could reinstall F-Secure trial without losing time. It may be because I had the original install package. I noticed that it had ms on it.
