Norton Internet Security 2008 :12 Month Licence

#1

When the 12 months subscription has expired.
Can you get another 12 months subscription by formatting windows and reinstall the software again?


#2

If your subscription ends, you have to use the update you have at that moment or purchase a new license. Any other method is illegal.

As Da_Taxman says.
Also, consider it an opportune time to get rid of Norton.
While it has good detection rates, it is a burden in some ways. New users get saddled with it because it “comes free” with their new computer.
A generous review here: (easy to find harsh ones)

If you want a “paid for” AV, consider something like NOD32.
It’s a robust, industrial-grade AV with a light resource hit.
If I were to gift an AV to a friend, it would be NOD32.

I have a free suite on this machine that includes Avast! (AV), Spyware Terminator (AS) and Comodo (FW) .
Works well, keeps me safe.

One more thing to keep in mind…
If you want to dump Norton, you may have to go to their site and grab a removal utility (software that will totally clean out Norton)
Why? Because Norton embeds deeply and can be difficult to remove completely.

There’s also a new free anitvirus, and free firewall, named Rising that has come out recently. I’ve been using them both for a couple of months and I really like them.

If you’d like to read up on them here’s a couple of threads from the Wilders Security forum.

yes im sure you can. but as the others have suggested this is illegal and there are IMO better solutions to virus protection

or avast! 4 Home Edition.

avast! antivirus Home Edition provides continuous protection of your valuable data and programs by updating itself automatically. Simply install and forget. [B]It also comes with anti-spyware & anti-rootkit protection[/B] for Windows, which are typically available only in the paid versions of many antivirus products.
