Do I have to uninstall my previous Norton Internet Security to upgrade?

I have an expired Norton Internet Security 2008 and I’m planning to get a Norton 2009 over the weekend. When I install, should I uninstall the 2008 one first, and then install my new one? Or will the 2009 version overwrite the old files? Also, if I bought a different brand, I should uninstall Norton 2008 first right?
Please answer both questions! Thank you

    If its the same Brand ie Norton No you don’t need to remove as it will happly over write. However, if you are installing a differant brand then you must remove Norton. PS Norton will protect you long after thier expiry date, the real new just come on stream one’s that might be a bit problematic…I feel you’ll be okay for a few days..don’t worry.
