    There is no in-built AV in Windows Me.

    What AV program are you running?

    I am planning on installing Windows XP Upgrade and I am running Norton Antivirus. I am supposed to disable all programs that are running before I start the Upgrade.
    Thanks for the reply.

    Depending on which version of NAV you are running you may find it easier to completely uninstall it rather than just trying to disable it. The program has so many parts, with auto-protection, email protection, startup scans etc, that disabling them all is a tricky job. Uninstall it from Add/remove programs.

    Reinstalling in XP also has the advantage that it will give you another year of free updates and downloads as well.

    BTW, my advice would be not to upgrade to XP. Backup everything, format the drive and do a clean install. All the people I know of with problems with XP are upgraders. A clean install seems to produce a much more stable reliable system.

    Just my opinion.

    Thanks Nick. I may try to go through the Upgrade. I have got a lot of negative vibs from people that have tried the Upgrade.
