Even with VAT being added it cost the equivalent of £19.99 to get the same software, that's a £10 saving. I downloaded the US version successfully. Perhaps Symantec might want to justify this discrepancy and explain why they feel UK customers should pay more than our US cousins.How many other companies are charging excessive prices in the UK for the same software.
