Hi,
Thank You!! for posting your Question.My name is ***** ***** today I will assist you to solve or identify your problem.

Why do you use so many programs, this will slow down your PC.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Norton Firewall was pre-installed.When I upgraded to Microsoft office 2010

the computer shop that installed it put Mcafee on as well.I think the Avira was transferred from the old Microsoft office 2003.

I would prefer to have 1 or 2 if I need them.

Expert:  Sudipto replied 2 years ago.
Which version of windows do you use ?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

Windows Vista

Expert:  Sudipto replied 2 years ago.
OK, one firewall program and one antivirus program is fine. As you have two antivirus program, I will recommend you to keep Mcafee and uninstall Avira, this will also make your PC faster.

Please let me me know, if you need any further help on this issue.

Good . How do I uninstall a program?

Basic problem;I have inherited computer from my late husband who had40 years business computing experience. I have none and am trying to learn piecemeal on computer set up by and for him.

Why is Mcafee better than Avira?

Expert:  Sudipto replied 2 years ago.

Here are the steps.

  1. Click Start , Control Panel, and then Programs.
  2. Under Programs and Features, click Uninstall a program. ...
  3. Select the program you want to remove. ...
  4. Click Uninstall at the top of the program list.

Mcafee is well known to catch latest new viruses in comparing to Avira.
