Hi~

I was not real happy with McAfee Security Center, especially after I lost internet connectivity thanks to their screwup last year, so when my subscription runs out this month I intend to install AVG Internet Security 2013.

In the meantime, suddenly McAfee Firewall keeps shutting off.

1. Should I just go ahead and uninstall McAfee now and install the AVG?

or

2. Is the McAfee Firewall issue a symptom of other problems I should address before installing the AVG?

Thanks in advance for the help. A donation coming your way.

Thanks for the advice. I already purchased the AVG through school for a big discount. Any reason I should NOT install it?

And once McAfee is gone everything is good to go?

Well, if you have already purchased AVG, you might as well use it. However, do stay away from the AVG PCTuneUp feature. It messes with the registry, like other registry cleaners. AVG is just not what it used to be.
