After overcoming initial download issues everything went through smoothly on my desktop W7 64-bit Home Premium PC.
I had backed up my identity safe records, but that was an unnecessary precaution because Norton retains the data even after uninstalling NIS 2011 that I was using at the time.
I was not given the option to change the default install location. That may be deliberate or necessary on Norton's part, but I am running out of space on the hard drive containing my OpSys and would preferred to have been given the choice.
I got the wrong country problem tried 3 times doing what they said still with no luck, but still got 3 product codes, emailed FE telling him I would not be able to take part. He emailed back quickly giving me the PCA link then all worked fine, installed on an older XP machine and all went well.
Considering it is an older machine the slowdown is very minimal.
