    if i were you i would uninstall them both and go for Avast or Avira.
    they will do a better job and use less resources. both are good you choose what one you want. :)

    personally i have Avast but you choose.

    Hope all goes well :):);):):):)

    yeah seriously, i almost disowned my girlfriend when she came up to me and asked for my paypal to renew her subscription to norton, i showed her MSE and mbytes. uninstalling norton was as if i was trying to pry a teddy bear from a child's hands.
