Question about Symantec Norton AntiVirus 2008: Windows

1 Answer

I subscribed online to Norton anti-virus but when I tried to download my product it said my subscription was due for renewal. I got an email thanking me for my purchase and with my product key number. When I try to register my key number, there isn't room for all the digits (25) to register.

I believe this is a rip off world. You have to watch out. So go back to your emails
that confirm your payment. You have transaction ID for payment and the product key.
Save those on notepad. Uninstall your existing norton software fully and restart
your computer, then download what you purchased. Pressing down the Crtl key
when clicking the download icon helps when it is hard to download
Does that help at all?

I do have an automatically renewable subscription to Norton.This was confirmed in a letter to me, as of June 12, 2011. In spite of this, I find my Norton services have disappeared without any notice !!! ....


If the software for Norton Symantec has disappeared, then you need to go to their website on the itnernet and reinstall it. If the software is still on your pc, but Norton anti virus isn't working - then thats a different issue.

You said you have a letter from Norton about your services right? Is it an email? If so, find the website address on the email and go to it. Then click on help and contact Nortons customer service department to tell them that you are a subscriber and your services have disappeared. They will have you verify your account info or your subscription from that letter, and then they will send you a link via email or provide you with the web address of a website to go to and download the software and activate your subscription to turn the services back on.

I renewed my subscription 5/3/11 for 1 yr. with Norton Anti Virus. i am not sure if it got downloaded as it does not show when i open up the Norton information about renewal, anti-spam, full scan, etc....


A renewal of a subscription should not require a download, it should just remain the same, only now you're allowed to use it, it just checks in with a remote server to make sure that you are authorized to use the product every time it turns on. In other words, it should all be set up for you.
However, if you ask me, I would suggest not using Norton, it is a faulty virus-checking software that hogs more resources than the viruses do. I would recommend, instead, with going to AVG http://free.avg.com/us-en/download or Avast! http://www.avast.com/free-antivirus-download (Avast! is my own personal preference, and the one that I use) they are both free forever, unless you want even more protection than you really need.
I hope this helps!

Renewal free norton Antirus 2010.


If you only need the anti-virus component of Norton 360 (it also includes an email filter and some other components) then I would recommend a newly-available free antivirus program, see the instructions for installation here:
http://www.fixya.com/support/r5317428-actually_free_antivirus_software_windows

However, if you do need the other components of Norton 360 I would choose another paid software. You can either go online to Norton's website and download the newest version of Norton 360 here:
http://antivirus.norton.com/content/en/us/home_homeoffice/html/paid/seo02252010/SEO_Static_Option_3_Col_Radio_02252010.html?om_sem_cid=hho_sem_sy:us:ggl:en:e|kw0000004480|5995564156&om_sem_site={adcopy}
When the program tells you that it has expired five days ago there is likely a link in this window for a website at which you can renew your subscription. This is likely a cheaper alternative to buying an entire new version of Norton 360 and will do the same thing, so try following this link and paying to increase your subscription if you want the suite of security software.

Your computer will now be secured from threats again!

I paid for it and have a product key. Norton says it is invalid.


If you have been charged for a Norton Automatic Renewal and your Norton product shows expired :
When Norton Automatic Renewal service extends the subscription to your Norton product, it is intended to automatically synchronize your subscription to the updated expiration date. Sometimes, due to connectivity issues, your Norton product may not be able to properly synchronize your new subscription. To resolve this issue, we recommend that you synchronize your computer with the Norton servers.
If you have a Norton 2009 product:
To fix the subscription status
1. Start your Norton product.
2. At the top right corner of the window, click Help & Support > Subscription Status.
3. Click Finish.

If your Product Key that you have typed is incorrect. Please follow these instructions to enter the correct Product Key.
If you are reinstalling Norton 2009, log on to your Norton Account to access your Product Key.
1. Log on to your Norton Account by going to the following Web page:
http://www.MyNortonAccount.com
2. Type your email address and password. 3. Click Sign In. 4. Under Registered Products, select your Norton product. 5. Write down the Product Key.
Type your product key again, exactly as it appears on the back of the CD envelope, or in the confirmation email from Symantec for your download purchase.


I hope this is helpful.

Message says my subscription has expired? I purchased Internet Security from Nortons on 12/7/07 why has it expired? It appars I am no longer protected and do not understand why this is.


Most of the Norton antivirus comes with one year subscription. date u mentioned here seems like more then 1 year old. That's why it says expired
If you dont want to spend any more money on antivirus then uninstall this one and download AVG from this site. this is really good antivirus for free and good for ever.

We are a Church and do not have a credit card to enable me to renew Anti Virus Protection online. Is it possible to be billed and pay by cheque?


Do not renew your subscription. I am guessing it is Norton(Symantec) or McAfee, unfortunately both of these once reputable anitivirus applications have become loaded with a lot of intrusive software that eats up system resources and slows your computer down.
Use a free antivirus application like AVG, Avast or NOD32. These free applications are just as good if not better to be honest, than either Norton or McAfee.
Here is a link to download the free version of AVG 8.0.
http://www.download.com/1770-2001_4-0.html?searchtype=downloads&query=avg%208.0%20free&tag=srch
I am the securities moderator on another forum and AVG is by far the most popular antivirus package.

Can't renew my Norton subscription online


If you're a home user I would suggest uninstalling Norton as you have an old version and install AVG Anti Virus and Zone Alarm firewall. These are both free for home users and have more modern engines.

You should also notice a speed improvement on your PC as Norton products can be quite rescource hungry.
