F-Secure Internet Security 2007 OEM & Expiry

  Fried~Chips 17:42 10 Mar 2008

I bought a F-Secure internet Security for my other newer XP machine today, installed it and everything went fine but I noticed it actually expires in May 2008 !!! er this states on the front sleeve 1 Year Subscription. Have i been ripped off a little. Why am I only getting only 2 months subscription. Seems a glitch to me.

Suggestions welcome or maybe F-Secure people would like to comment.

Perhaps you have to register it?

Only a guess I use AVG free.

I will try that via their site but their is no requirement in the software. It did activate in the final stages of installation. Very strange, don't really see why this happens because their are some places online still selling F-Secure 2005, & 2006. My clock and everything is fine their is no conflicts will traul their online support, wonder if be it OEM software makes a difference ?

wonder if its a time out thing.

I would advise anyone buying F-Secure Internet Security 2007 OEM not to because when installed it will only give you 2 months subscription tops. I suspect their is a expiry of when the 2007 software was actually made on the CD of this version. Most annoying problem and strange no person here has come upon this problem.
