I've been using Nortons for years, cant say anything bad about the the performance. If I'm not mistaken I'm only allowed three computers per purchase.


The family and I have 5 computers now. I'm looking for a 5 computer deal.


Any recommendations?

Eset Smart Security has a 5 computer offer.



I have used Eset Smart Security for several years and have had no problems with it. 


The major security products will offer a free trial. I suggest you install the trial version of whatever paid product you are interested in on ALL your computers.


The trials will be fully functional.


This will give you a chance to see if it plays nice with a system  and give you an over-all feel for the program.  I do have the 5 computer deal and Eset works well on all of them.


With Eset, if you decide you want to get the 5 pc offer, all you have to do is enter the license key into the already installed trial program.

Alternatively, if you wish to stay with Norton, you  can buy Norton Security (no backup functionality, supports upto 5devices of supported type) or Norton Security with Backup(with backup functionality, supports upto 10devices of supported type).

Then, talking to customer service, you may be able to transfer existing subscription days to the new one. (Before buying, I strongly suggest to talk to customer service about migration plans to have a troubleless migration.... :)

customer service: http://www.norton.com/chat

product info: http://www.norton.com

You can get good deals in price on third party stores like Amazon....



Lastly, if moving off from Norton products, please ensure you use Norton Removal Tool from www.norton.com/nrt
