  1. My windows security center doesnt seem to give me the option to switch my
    current viris protection program to another one I want to use in its place,
    how do switch to the one i want instead of just uninstalling the old one?

    You've got a misunderstanding about what the Security Center actually
    does. It is really just an alerter. It doesn't provide any "switching"
    or "control" functions.

    If you want to change your antivirus, take your computer off the
    Internet first. Then uninstall the old antivirus program from
    Add/Remove Programs. You will probably need to restart the computer.
    Then install your new antivirus program. Connect to the Internet
    (making sure you have a firewall in place first, of course) and get the

    Security Center should reflect the fact that you have an antivirus
    installed and that the definitions are current. But that's all it does.
