Please use this thread to post about your download and installation experience. When mentioning specific problems please ignore the fact that the initial download link may not have worked for you.

Download and installation of Norton 360 v6 beta went without incident, existing Norton was uninstalled automatically. No problems to report

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.

Install was fine apart from having to uninstall 360 version 5 manually.

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.

Download went well with new link provided by FE. Bigger download than I had anticipated. Everything installed perfectly and it took off my previous Virus and Firewall. I immediately updated it on the update centre which took seconds and everything appears to be working fine.

Installed on Win 7 64 bit quad core with 8GB mem.

Chrome crashed when Norton was installing. Coincidence? Doubtful.

Other than that it was painless enough. Automatic installation of a tool bar in Chrome is annoying. I try my level best to keep my browser screens as uncluttered as possible.
