Norton IS 2012 Beta Test

  rawprawn 17:28 18 Apr 2011

I have just had an mail from Norton asking me to download and test this program. I assume this has nothing to do with the PCA beta testing to which I have agreed to take part. So I should ignore this offer ??

The beta software you're being offered is the same as that which we'll test, but our testers will get a free 1 year licence, so if you've signed up for our test (which will start fairly soon) don't use the download link you've received from Symantec - I'll be sending you a special one.

Forum Editor Thanks for the answer that clears it up. I guess they just sent the link because I am already using Norton.

looking at the norton beta forum plenty of minor probs, i expect we will get the next build beta to test.

i too got the email from norton but holding back awaiting the pca options. looking forward to it.

Have the PCA Testers been chosen then?

i still think norton are waiting for the next beta build before unleashing it on us, too many problems on the first build. perhaps our FE could make a call.

That answers a question for me I was only thinking earlier what had happened to the test so I shall just sit tight.

Downloaded and using mine on a netbook, after invite from FE last weekend.

Still waiting for e-mail from the FE, to advise commencement of test.

The editor sent me the PCA link at the beginning of the week and I have been testing it for a few days with many many problems. After reading this I have just taken it off again and as usual for Symantec it left so many remnants for Revo and Ccleaner to get rid of. I'll leave my other comments until the official site opens when I will also download a more modern version.
