This article describes how to uninstall various anti-virus programs and install one preferred program.
The use of multiple anti-virus programs may cause your system to lockup. Anti-virus programs come pre-installed on most Dell Computers, so customers sometimes install other anti-virus programs without realizing that there is already a system installed. If you decide to install an alternate anti-virus software, it is important that you first uninstall any other anti-virus programs that may be running on your computer.
If McAfee SecurityCenter is still not uninstalled, perform the following:
To uninstall Norton Internet Security 2004 or 2005:
