I'm a little confused about Norton's subscription policy give their new products.

 

I know i can't use a Norton 360 key on the new product, but can I do a fresh install/activation of Norton 360 2014 version ?

Sorry, would love to help but, I don't recommend Norton, never have, never will.  Mostly what I have done w/ Norton over the years is remove it for my customers, often @ their request.  All have been grateful for saving their money and having better performance & a safer experience.

I don't see why you can't, If you have any problems you should post them on the norton forum, but as drew has said, not many people like notron and I see bitdefender as a much better option, but, that is only my opinion.

If you need help with Norton, I recommend posting in the Norton Community Forum.

There is no need to change your antivirus if you are happy with it... if you do want to change, feel free to post here for advice.

Norton used to have many instances where the product was free after rebate, so any time I would see this I would pick one up because it was always possible to install the latest version and use the key from the older product (as long as it wasn't really old).  With the 2015 versions you can't do that as they renamed the product.  I am assuming the keys will work with the 2014 versions of the products - unless they prohibit that now also.  Just wondering if anyone had tried.

I guess you are confused because they decided to rebrand all their products under a single one around a year ago?

Comcast/Xfinity - but I'm a nice guy - I install these on other people's computers when they ask me to look at them and they don't have AV :)

I understand that they rebranded, I was confused about people complaining they had to pay for their license again.  I guess they were unable to upgrade without buying a new license.  First time I read about it I thought Symantec was canceling the licenses as of April or at least not allowing you to activate a new install of an old version of the product (which I'm still not sure about).

I take that to mean you don't want to install Norton on YOUR computer. Am I correct in thinking this?

I have the comcast branded one running there.

 

Nothing is perfect, but free ain't bad.  I actually like Norton, not the pig it used to me.

I was going to mention Comcast provides Norton free to customers.

Moot point since you already have it installed.

FYI:

Because an ISP offers some security product one is not obliged to use it.  One is free to use whatever else they desire instead.  Example;  My own ISP offers McAfee which, I certainly, have no interest in using...would be the same if it were Norton.  Ergo, instead, I have the security in place that does interest me.  Anyone has this same freedom of choice.

Agreed - but if I like it AND I am paying for it anyway AND it never expires.....

 

I don't use it on all the PC's in the house (Webroot on a couple) but I do use it.

 

Which vendors are your favorites?
