Norton Internet Security Installation advice

  highside 16:42 19 Mar 2013

Am I going wrong somewhere? I have had Norton Internet Security for years, this year my automatic subscription they tell me is £51. Whats the point when it is being sold on the net by all sorts of people for half that? If I buy from an independent or auction site is there a catch and can I remove or write over my present installed copy with the new one? Thanks for advice.

Yes that's a rip off

you could even buy it cheaper from PC world :0) and uninsta;; old version using the uninstall tool from the site and reinstall the new

Thats interesting but how would it affect my present account with Norton especially as it would be the same email address. Doesnt look easy to remove a Norton account (ie the associated account not the program itself)

Use the Norton uninstall software to remove current version and then buy a new version at half the price ! Do not choose automatic renewal !
