Do I need to remove my current antivirus program before downloading a new one? I'm worried my computer will be at risk when I'm getting the new one (if that makes sense)
Can't check back for reply until tommorow

Download the new one (Save, not Run)

Disconnect from the internet

Remove your old AV

Install the new AV

Reconnect to the net

Yes you need to remove/uninstall your old Anti-virus or any other internet security before installing new.

If you connect via Lan connection and are concerned then I would unplug your Lan/ethernet cable while installing this. Most times though when removing old ones they put your windows firewall back on untill a new product is installed.
