    My new computer came with trial version of Mcafee installed. It is no doubt a good AV, but when the trial is up I plan to go to Bit Defender, and LnS.

    I know that Norton is difficult to uninstall, but how about McAfee?

    Do plenty of 'homework' first! Had some friends that were never totally able to remove McA Security Suite (7 I think?) from their ME box. Their system is still quite tainted. Some of the AV/Computer companies have us 'over a barrel' to start with! This is probably the main reason I'm still using NAV. I know I won't get rid of it totally until I do a fresh OS reinstall!
