4.0 out of 5 stars works fine January 19, 2012
By Lori
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I already had Norton, which was about to expire so I downloaded this (though I was worried because of all the bad reviews). I thought it didn't work at first because it still said I had 1 day remaining. I tried uninstalling, and reinstalling Norton, but the old subscription was still active (for 1 more day). Then I tried this:

All you have to do is open Norton (click on the icon) and click on Renew. Then click on I HAVE A PRODUCT KEY TO ENTER. Enter the product key and you're set for another year.

I didn't give it 5 stars just because instructions were not provided with the download. Otherwise, everything looks fine.

5.0 out of 5 stars this is NOT a trial product!!! December 4, 2011

Don't listen to the other guy. All you have to do is enter your product key (write it down before you install the program) and bam, you'll be protected for 366 days. Screencap is in my comment below.

5.0 out of 5 stars For once, many reviews here are wrong! February 24, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
It is just as one user wrote before me... this product can be downloaded for renewal of a currently installed Norton product. The key is available to write down before you even press the download button. Write it down. When you open Norton, find where it says to renew, and there will be a place to input the key you have. Once you do so, you will be protected for 366 days. This is SO much cheaper than downloading from the Norton site, which was $39.99 for 3 computers (while I only have one). Thanks again Amazon!

1.0 out of 5 stars Fooled me twice July 6, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I bought a Norton antivirus product years ago and ended up uninstalling because it caused major performance problems on my PC. I purchased this based on the great reviews in PC mags and online, assuming that it had to be a totally different by now. Unfortunately this was not the case. I found that it randomly blocked sites like my amazon cart and even Norton's own support site. It even stopped my PS3 (connected to the same router) from playing videos from the big two online video services. There are lots of tips online about how to get it working, but it's 2012 and I'm well beyond the point of spending hours researching and tweaking settings on software just to get it work right.

5.0 out of 5 stars Just FOLLOW THE DIRECTIONS! January 21, 2012
By KT
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
I just bought this because I didn't want to wait for the hard copy version to be mailed to me, with only two days left on my 2011 Norton.
It worked perfectly! Just make sure you write down the Product Key (in case it doesn't reappear when you need it).
I just followed the prompts and it now says I'm protected for 366 days (when I sign in to my Norton account).

5.0 out of 5 stars go into your software library January 15, 2012
Platform for Display:PC Download|Verified Purchase
Hi guys,

So I was willing to spend my 18.99 on this product despite the bad reviews but it actually works. Once downloaded, I was told that it was a trial...BUT then if you go back to the amazon website to your orders, you will see your software library. You should see your software purchase with a product key in bold. Just enter it into the product key box and follow the instructions

The user who complained that this is a trial needs to locate his product key. It can be found in the order history, under software library.

5.0 out of 5 stars Well worth the investment for protection of my computer November 2, 2011
Platform for Display:PC
I thought it would be interesting to match this program with my existing PC protection program. It was interesting and I am amazed. The Norton program was able to detect huge number of dangerous items during the first scan that had been apparently being missed by the other program.

Norton Antivirus 2011 was designed to protect against viruses, spyware, worms,Trojans, Bots and Dangerous Downloads. While not in any way sophisticated to the level of knowing the consequences of each of the above, all of that sounds dangerous to my work which occupies most of my time. I want it protected to the state of the art! I believe that this program will protect that which is valuable...the material used and stored on my PC.

The cost is reasonable and very user friendly.
