You can remove programs doing the following:

1. Click on the Windows Icon (Start button) lower left of screen
2. In the right pane click on Control Panel
3. Under Programs click on the item Uninstall a program

Windows then lists all programs that were installed using Windows installer.

1. Select the program you want to uninstall by Clicking on it
2. Click at the top on Uninstall/Change
3. In the next message box, confirm the uninstall process by clicking on Yes.

Yes you should only have one Anti-Virus program running, as they can conflict with others. AVG is a good one for Windows 7.

You can keep Malwarebytes, just don't let it run in the background. It is a good program, just double click the icon to run a scan once in a while. To stop it from running in the background, thus conflicting with other programs;

Double click the Malware Icon, probably down in your taskbar, usually a blue icon maybe looks like a bat.

1. Open the Settings in the menu pane
2. Under "Protection" tab, scroll down and disable the switch labeled "Start Malwarebytes at Windows Startup"
Thanks for getting back to me. I did a lousy job of explaining from the beginning. I am running Windows 7 and periodically check my programs to uninstall ones I don't trust,use or need. The problem is McAfee or Malwarebytes do not come up. I know they"re there because the tech from AVG showed them to me but I didn't pay close enough attention to what he did.
