lost subscription renewal on system restore

  mec13 21:20 06 Mar 2005

I recently renewed my subscribtion to Nortons 'live up-date' for another year(£20 and not without problems, but thats another story) I downloaded some silly trail programe from a magazine cd, had a go, and got it all wrong, decided to uninstall it. It would not uninstall so I thought system restore to an earlier time. But! that lost me my live update renewal subscription(£20)so back to original state with updated live update, but silly cd programne which I can't get rid of. You will of course notice my level of computer knowledge is a bit under par. Trying to delete gives me all sorts of warnings which has stopped me pressing the 'delete' button.

It might be time to uninstall Norton AV and go for one of the free options. Avast or AVG are excellent and free.

All you need to do is remove norton in add remove programs, then re-intstall and it should update your subscription automatically.

Its alright saying remove Norton, when I've already paid my renewal, but its a thought for maybe next time. Sattman I actually went onto symantec sight and followed their instuctions, as per your suggestion and it worked. I just needed sound advice from a more knowlegdable source (yourself)to confirm it was the right way to go, Thanks!
