i'd delete norton off first so it does not "interfere" with the new software. Just my opinion, and if it all goes horribly wrong, dobnt blame me - i am not an expert.

It shouldn't make any difference, IMHO. But Norton products are shit, again MHO.

Norton is actually worse than having no protection at all really - you think you're protected when you probably aren't.

Avast FTW.
