Solved installing norton 360 with product Key

October 31, 2011 at 13:00:47
Specs: Windows 7
I purchased Norton 360 5.0 disc from retailer and want to install this onto my note book but there is no disc slot on this. I have Product key and have tried to install by downloading from web with no success. I have a laptop which I can install from the disc but this does not help installing on note book. I have registered with norton as a customer but this has not helped .Any ideas?

You can download the trial version of Norton 360 from here and once installed you can activate it as a full version using your key.

Ignore the scaremongers about Norton being bloatware, these days it is extremely good and those who say it isn't have invariably never tried using recent versions. I install many different security programs on different machines, and Norton is now the fastest to install, usually less than a minute, and as it's a complete package, unlike Microsoft Security Essentials, you are totally safe doing on-line banking etc. - more than can be said if you are using MSE. I agree about McAfee though, they still haven't got their problems sorted..

Have you tried sharing the CD drive on your laptop and then installing over the network. (Not guaranteed to work, but worth a try.)

Those should work, but WHY!! Your machine is better off without it. Norton (and McAfee) have developed over the years into Bloatware that uses system resources wastefully and does not even do it's primary job as well as lower cost and even free ones with much less impact on your system's speed. Use Avast (free version available), Microsoft Security Essentials (Free), or my personal favorite, Webroot's Antivirus with Spysweeper (need to pay for, offers discount for 3 or 5 systems). All downloadable on line.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Hopefully you didn't open the package? If you did, you're out of luck but if you didn't, you should be able to get your money back.

Hi Rider
Thanks for your reply I have opened the package but will be using disc to install on my new laptop. Have been trying to download onto my existing note book, seeing as this product has 3 computer useage. I have got the product key with the disc but there is no way to download from the web onto my note book.
Thanks again

I always buy my Norton security online as an instant download then I can just go into my account on each computer and install that way so something to think about for next time. I dont think if you buy the disk you have the online option to do that. Mary!

Hi Mary.
Thanks for your imput. It seems that what you say is correct. I probably should have bought on line rather than purchasing disc from retailer but the suggestion from john r is a good one and will no doubt solve my problem.
Thanks again
