I need to uninstall Norton Security Internet (a trial already installed on my laptop when I bought it & almost expired) and install Avast.

What steps do I need to follow in order to keep my laptop safe?

Thanks!
 
You can uninstall Norton from your Windows Control Panel - > Programs (Uninstall a program). You can also use Revo Uninstaller, a free utility that will uninstall Norton and remove any remaining data associated with Norton.

I believe Norton also has a utility specifically for removing their security software, though it's seldom necessary.
