The sun is shining, strawberries are in season, it's beta testing time again

  Forum Editor 22:44 01 Jul 2014

There will be a new version of Norton Internet Security software launched in the autumn, and as with previous versions, Norton has asked us if we can run a test program of the beta software.

As before, the lucky testers will each get a free licence for the new version when it launches, but this time the licence will be for up to ten devices.

There is a strict limit on the number of licences available this time, so if you would like to take part in the test please apply as soon as possible.

Email me at: [email protected] telling me that you would like to participate. Provide me with your real name and forum name, and your email address. Do NOT apply by posting in this thread - I can only accept email applications.

The test will start in around ten days time, so please don't delay. I'll look forward to hearing from you.

Strawberries may be in season but in Morrisons they're from Spain.

Thank you for the applications received so far. There's still room for more, so keep the emails coming.

The best strawberries are the ones you grow yourself.

See ripe strawberries in the garden, pick them and eat them, right away!

is there a start date for the beta?

  Forum Editor 18:34 06 Jul 2014


It's likely to be very soon - sometime this week I think. We're waiting for more information from Norton.

As soon as I know, I'll be writing to everyone who has shown an interest.

It's time to get started.

I'll be emailing everyone on the test panel this evening.

I had an email yesterday from norton to test the beta, is this what you arranged? or are you sending a seperate link for the PCA group testters?
