Is it better to uninstall V. 5 before installing new V.6 for Norton 360?
When I was at the store, I mentioned the issue one person had listed on this board of having problems with the new version of 360. I was told it is best to uninstall the old version before installing the new because sometimes files trip up the install. If I uninstall, doesn't that leave our computer open to everything (hackers, etc.) that we are trying to avoid? I know it doesn't take long to install, but when I see so many people having problems, it leaves me thinking our computer will be unprotected between the time it takes to uninstall and then get the new one installed. I need to do this today or tomorrow at the latest as we only have 5 days left on our current subscription. I opted to go to the store rather than download to save a little money. Thanks in advance for any insight to this issue. In reading of the problems with V.6 I am so totally not looking forward to this install since I had trouble a few years ago when it ended up taking a full day plus at the computer trying to get everything repaired thru Norton.
