I've never used MRTG on Windows, but in general, you can uninstall and 
then, install the new version without any problem. The only thing is to 
be sure the uninstaller does not delete neither your config file nor 
your mrtg files (.log, .html, etc).

In fact, last time I upgraded MRTG I just uninstalled the current 
version, Installed the new one and done. If you do that in less than 
5min, you can barely see that something happened in your graphics.

What I did:

i. I stopped the system to call MRTG every 5min (crond in unix, 
programmed tasks in windows I think).
ii. Unistall
iii. Install the new version
iv. I set back my crond to call again mrtg every 5min.
