    Good day all,
    I just bought an acer extensa 5220 notebook (XP Pro). I have not used it yet for work. It had Norton Internet security (trial version) installed. I prefer to use McAfee AV. I installed McAfee and restarted my notebook. However, i did not uninstall Norton. When notebook started up again it restarted after startup, it kept doing this over again, first showing blue screen before restarting (but too fast so i couldn't read the error message). So, i booted into safe mode and restored back to the time before McAfee was installed. It is stable for now.
    My questions are:
    Do you think my problem was because of not uninstalling Norton first?
    Was i correct in using system restore (what are the repercussions if not)?
    Does my notebook model support McAfee AV or was i wrong to try to install it and should stick with Norton?

    I am grateful for any help. Thank you
