Now consider this scenario where you would want to remove the anti virus that you are currently using and install another anti virus, from another manufacturer. In that case, you would first have to uninstall your current anti-virus and then install the other anti-virus.

So, you are now left with no anti virus at all. To avoid this solution, you should use an anti virus tool, that is provided by the manufacturer.
