I have used norton for years and they piss me off how they make it difficult to add to another PC. I pay for 3 and it says I still have 1 activation remaining but damn if I can figure out how to access that remaining activation.

Anyway, I'm shopping around.

whats good?

Help with Product Activation
Help with Norton 360 product activation
Help with Norton 2010 product activation

If none of those articles are helpful, then you should contact and ask Symantec/Norton Product Support for assistance.

Generally speaking, all you have to do is install Norton in your computer, click renew at the bottom of the page and insert your product activation key. The key will be in a Symantec folder in My Documents in the computers that are activated, or available on your My Norton Account. If you have a 2006 and newer, you can upgrade for free to the newest version on all your machines.

Downloads for the most recent versions can be had here.





For assistance if required, the Norton forums are here.

If your still looking. I have been using 'Eset Smart Security 4' going on 3 years. I like it because it doesn't take up much memory and doesn't slow down my system. http://www.eset.com/home
