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.
The disk arrived within days (thank you Amazon). This price cannot be beaten. Most distributors are paying Norton $19.99 and reselling at $39.99. I always highly recommend using a disk versus download. I understand the convenience of downloading but for those who have downloaded this or previous Norton versions, the Law of Unintended Consequences frequently attaches.
With that caveat, let me share with you that my Norton installation was simple and absent any glitches. The program ran a complete system scan and found two viruses that CA clearly missed. This version of Norton sits quietly in the background compared to earlier versions. It doesn't hog the memory and I have not noticed any slowing of speed or quality in using all my other programs. I like that it quietly scans all one might seek to download and will identify if the product, app, etc., is safe. It is unobtrusive when it performs these functions.
KEY POINT - this version of Norton is composed of different programming than Norton Internet Suite or 360. The Suite and 360 - despite advertising to the contrary with alleged new and improved updates - are still utilizing the same software and all its defects from their previous versions. They are retreads. 2012 Norton Anti-Virus and Spyware is fresh and composed of substantially different software composition. This is apparent after using the 2012 anti-virus. You will know what I mean if you bagged on Norton in the past five years because its products provided poor quality, excessive memory usage, slow speeds, and overall undependability that wasn't worth any price. 2012 Norton Anti-Virus & Spyware is a welcome and pleasant surprise. I learned about the software re-composition from my engineer because Norton had to convince him (from an engineering angle) that it was even remotely worth his time to revisit Norton.
I am not a believer of on-line renewal. I want that disk in my hand. For this reason, and because there is no telling if the 2013 version that Norton is sure to produce will be any good, I plan to purchase another 2012 Anti-Virus & Spyware disk later in the year. When my current subscription runs out I intend on having another year of good anti-virus coverage while Norton potentially trys to figure out if there are problems with it's 2013 product.
You can't go wrong with at least giving it a try at these prices. I subsequently purchased another 2012 Norton Anti-Virus & Spyware disk with three licenses for my other computers at home and work. I say "ditto" to the above for that disk too.
