You should NEVER install/use two AV's at the sama time. But why do you want to keep Norton, and not Avast ???

Anyway, to uninstall Avast you can use the Uninstall Utility :

Greetz, Red.
OS: Win 7 x64 SP1 / Vista x32 SP2  Real TimeAIS  MBAM Pro  WinPatrol Plus  Hostman + MVPS HOSTS  On Demand: SAS Pro / Free  AVZ  Hitman Pro  Secunia PSI  Backup: Win 7 Image / Acronis True Image Home  VPN: Mullvad, and testing a few more
