You should read your link

"Only Available with selected hardware purchases"

So whats it going to cost at the end of the day

"Only Available with selected hardware purchases"

About 2 pence on a bad day!

And just went through to checkout with t for a total price including delivery of 13 pounds 74.

The reason it's specified as delivery only with hardware is that it is an OEM copy, therefore, strictly speaking, only available to system builders etc. In reality, from the likes of, for example, some ebay vendors, you buy it with some case screws. For most online purchases from other stores the exclusions tend not to matter too much to the seller.

Note to ford_transit: OEM copies are not usually covered for tech support by the manufacturer. Usually you have to go to the company that sold it to you for support. The cost for Kaspersky for the product in queston is around 40ish pounds. If you pay less than that then check to see if it is an OEM copy!

Thanks, OTT_Buzzard, for information and the warning about the difference between OEM versions and normal "retail to Joe Public" version. I bought mine at PC World, paid top whack, £48.92, so it should be legit.

Next day, I was sitting at the computer, waiting for something, so I had a look through the Makro brochure.

That was when I saw it for £24.99. The picture in the brochure shows an identical package to mine, right down to the "3-users" marking.

Thanks to everyone for your comments.
Regards, remember the sun-block if you go out-of-doors.
Cheers.
