I am looking into buying Norton 360 and i have found it being offered by a company calling themselves Eonline.
I just wondered if anyone knows about them and whether they are a legit distributor.

Here is their address: click here

They are offering a one year licence for £40 and a 2 year for £50. It just seems a bit fishy considering Norton want £60 for a one year and no mention of a 2 year licence.

No physical contact address, registered Office showing on site or phone number - Not a good sign....

"It just seems a bit fishy considering Norton want £60 for a one year and no mention of a 2 year licence." - you're right.

"and whether they are a legit distributor." - contact Symantec about this.

To add to what Patr100A said: no address. phone number, etc.

The website/domain was created less than 3 months ago & is based in Singapore click here.

Payment is by PayPal only - no credit cards.

There's a slim chance it could be legit, but I personally wouldn't risk £40-50. G

There is a legal obligation for commercial enterprises in the UK/Europe to give official address and other details on their website. I cannot find this information for them. AVOID.

stateside counterpart, its the same site on both sides of the pond, I smell a huge rat!!!

why you might want Norton anyhow. Why not opt for a free version such as Avast, AVG 8, or any of the other AV progs which are recommended on here, plus a free anti-malware?

PC Advisor's CD this month has a free download of PC Tools software-worth £50. If I did not already have this excellent programme I would go for that. It only has one disadvantage--Symantec have recently bought them out and will probably undo all the good work in the developement side

i would go avg 8, [had no nasties from it at all!] and ZA fire wall [love ZA program control]
