I will be upgrading from Vista to W7 and this will be a 1st time experience for me.

I read the Microfsoft chart on this activity and according to the written table I will not have to intervene and everything will be upgraded automatically.

My question is do I need to disable my Avira security prior to loading the W7 CD's.

Thanks

It will all depend on the method of the upgrade.
Is this upgrade DVD going to be a OEM upgrade or will it be a RETAIL copy upgrade?

If OEM, then you will need to check with them.
If a RETAIL, then I would check with the OEM of this Avira program.

Can you provide a link to this "Chart" that you are referring to?

Is this machine running Vista 32 or 64 bit OS?

You have a 64 bit machine but it could be running the 32 bit OS.

Use the "Windows key+Pause/Break key" and this will open you System information page. They in about half way down is the System section. You OS type will be listed there.
