Your Office should reset, but if you registered your Norton which is required to download updates as far as I remember, then your 60 days will start from when you first registered it.
When you reload Norton, you can put in your registration details and it should continue where it left off.

How do i remove norton 360 fron one computer so i can install it on another

Hello kenelwell,

Norton 360 usually has 3 activations when purchased. If you have only used 1, all you need to do is install it on the new computer and use the same CD Key that you used prior.

There is some information on the Symantec site about this very thing. You can read more about it at:

Norton 360 on additional computers

There are some special conditions if 360 came already installed on your old computer.

Hope this provides you with the needed information.

Lastly, to remove 360 (and other products from Symantec) the best thing is to run the Norton Removal Tool which can be found at:

Thanks for using Fixya.

Norton renewal subscription

the problem lies in the registry uninstall norton 360 then re-install this clears the reg then try your key again.

my personal View Don't use norton 360 as it will slow your system down use Kespersky Internet security this is the best one out and also use avg virus program when you switch to kaspesky internet security then remove avg which you can get a free version.

Gateway desktop

Only if it's not an HP labele operating system disc. Otherwise you will need an XP operating system disc, the HP recovery disc with XP will not work with your Gateway or any other manufacturer machine other than HP. The operating system on any manufacturer recovery disc is assigned to that specific manufacturer, so if you try to install from the HP disc it might install, but it will only give you thirty days, then shut down, or it won't install at all. It will be cheaper to purchase an XP operating system disc than all the software over again just for Viiiiiista!!! (I enjoy making fun of Vista) If you have anymore questions or need help feel free to ask.

Norton 360 is not recognisingproduct key

Is the Norton 360 preinstalled on the new laptop, or are you installing from a disc? If the latter, call symantec customer service, not technical support.
