I recently purchased Norton 360 Version 5.0 from a firm called Megabuy.com.au. It cost me about $65, which seemed loke a good price. However, when the package arrived it is tagged as "PC Attach To be sold with a new pc only. Not to be sold separately" Megabuy did not disclose this when I orded the product. That aside, my question is; can I install this on aa computer that is currently running Norton? Shouls I remove Norton to install the new version? Will Norton be able to detect what going on. I'd simply return it and spend the extra $35 to get a correct version, but my guess is I'll have buckley's of see a cent!

Any advice welcome.

Regards

Thanks again. That is the version on my computer. I purchased the new edition because my current subscription is about to expire, and Norton's renew price was more than some offers I'd seen recently. Just to confirm, that version is 5.0.2.13

The latest version according to Norton's website is Norton 360 version 6.0. So I would send it back, and buy a retail version. Thats was probably why it was so cheap.

Brendan99,

Just enter the product key (that came with your Norton purchase) into your already installed Norton.

  • Start Norton 360.
  • Click Account.
  • Click Renew Subscription.
  • In the box, type the Renewal Code.
Wait until your current subscription is a day from expiry before using the new key or you will lose the days you have remaining on the subscription when you enter the new product key.


Norton offer FREE upgrades to the latest version of their products, as long as you have a valid subscription.
