Never install two resident AV's and have both running - they WILL interfere, and cause problems.
I would recommend uninstalling one or the other, rather than just disabling one.

I'd use MSE.

Other tips for setting up your Win7 perfectly are the same as in Clean Reinstall - Factory OEM Windows 7.

As it suggests once you get it set up and running perfectly, save a Win7 backup image so you never have to reinstall again - just reimage the HD or its replacement in 20 minutes using System Image Recovery
