Hell, I can give you the source code for all Norton products right now…

10 Execute
20 If Norton = installed, cripple PC with ads for other Norton products
30 If Norton = running, eat all available resources
40 If user = unhappy with Norton && browser url = ESET, disable browser
50 If trial remain = 0 days, charge arm and leg to renew for 365 days
60 End
