Apols, but there's no proper sub-forum for this, so I think it sits best here (notwithstanding it's hardly a hi-fi or a/v issue!).
I bought my laptop with a McAfee package, which recently expired. Rather than spend £50 to renew it, I installed AVG 8 (for free) and had both software running in tandem (two anti-viruses are better than none being the logic). AVG recently up-graded to AVG 9, and as part of that it said "I see you have a rival programme - having two could cause problems and slow you computer down". Separately, every time I turn on the lappy McAfee pops up and warns me that it's out of date and needs urgent action (the action being to spend £50, which I'd rather not do!).
In short, should I put up with (and ignore) the pop-ups from McAfee or just delete it?
