    I just bought a new 2006 version of antivirus on ebay. When I get it and
    install it, will it recognize I have my 2005 version, or do I need to
    uninstall the 2005 before I install the 2006? Its the full version 2006,
    not the one where you have to have a previous version.

    But can't you remove the icon from the tray? I have always been able to
    remove any icons I want.

    But can't you just bypass the features you do not want? and what features
    do you not like?

    You can install over the top, disable what you hate but bottom line is
    your computer will run like shit with 2006. If you do not demand
    performance, I suppose Norton will be adequate.

    So you would suggest sticking with 2005 and just doing the added download
    for updates? Or another antivirus program altogether?

    I use NOD32. You will not even know it is there unless something nasty
    intrudes. Not free, but they do have a 30 day trial. Try it. What do
    you have to lose? http://www.eset.com/download/trial.htm

    There are good antivirus programs available to download for free. For
    example, AVG Free Edition from grisoft.com. The essential advantage
    of the freeware is not that it's free, but that it doesn't keep
    bloating up with useless "features", like Norton, McAfee, & Computer
    Associates. AVG Free keeps it simple. And it's entirely adequate.
