Hi, Heres something ive been pondering over to save a bit of cash. If i purchase Norton Internet Security 2010 with a 1 year license for £19 instead of £30 odd for the 2011 version , can i just use the 2010 license key, then download 2011 and activate it with my 2010 key? I feel it should work, am i correct ?
Rob_08 As long as your current version has a valid subscription you can go to Nortons Update Center click here and get the most recent version FREE. I did this recently from NIS2009 to NIS2011. The blurb below is a direct copy from the landing page of the link above.
"Get the latest version now! As a Norton subscription customer, you deserve the most current protection available. With your current paid subscription, you are entitled to download the latest version of your Norton product during your service period. It's safe, easy, secure, and provides the latest features and performance improvements"
Hi again Rob_08 - if the link in my post doesn't work the address is h t t p // u p d a t e c e n t e r . c o m - obviously without the spaces. the URL I have addedin my original message is correct but it appears as 'CLICK HERE' within my post and it doesn't appear to be pointing to the above. However, if you hover over the 'CLICK ME' in previous post it shows the correct address. A bit long and drawn out sorry.
Thanka again for all the replies and info. The problem is i think i only have one activation left ( i hate that about Norton products) I beta-test software for companies and need to reinstall or image my drive regularly so i did need to re-activate it a number of times. Now though i image my drive with NIS as part of the backup. Hope you follow me. I think if i try to install 2011 its going to make me activate again and i think i could be doomed. Hence why i am looking for the cheapest way to do this. Cheers.
