✔ Best Answer
You bought a new laptop which has no optical drive? I don't know of any new laptops which don't have one. Are you sure it isn't a Netbook you bought? (they don't have an optical drive).

The only way to install the Norton CD is to copy the entire CD content to a pen drive (1GB capacity or more) using a PC which has an optical drive, then plug the pen drive into your netbook and run the Norton 360 setup file.

Alternatively, take the Norton CD back (unopened) for a refund, then pay for a downloadable copy of Norton 360 online direct from Symantec:

If it came with a trial (which I'm sure it did) then you can just activate it on-line. If it is a trial, I would suggest you just uninstall it and use a freebie like Avast free:
It should be more than adequate for your laptop as far as protection goes...

If you bought the Norton CD from the same shop as the laptop, I would suggest not to open it and take it back for a refund...

If you got the disk as part of an offer then don't bother paying for a downloadable version as it will be more expensive direct from Norton. Simply download the trial version from use it for free for 30 days and then activate it using the key in the cd case.

I'm guessing the OP has purchased an ultrabook, rather than a netbook, same issue with no optical drive, but the rest of the hardware is decent.
