    I have avira antiver installed but want to replace it with avg free.

    However in the avira quarantine there are a couple of trogans and worms.

    Do I uninstall avira and let the above viruses go back on my hard drive, then install avg and run it, so that it will pick up the viruses I have just deleted from avira.

    Or is there another way to get rid of them AND then install avg.

    I believe you can delete them, then turn of system restore shut down reboot turn on system resore then run the avg IS that correct

    thank you

    I don't see the harm in doing that.
    Just make sure they're all gone and I would probably do one last scan with avira just to be sure any nasties lurking around disappear.
