If you can, sell the activation card to someone else and download Avast antivirus free version instead. It is better and will not put additional load in your system the way Norton always does (slowing you down). If you still want Norton, just visit their website, if the download is not immediately clear contact their support from there for their help (they can probably email you the link directly).

Just out of interest Fingers, when was the last time you personally used Norton, Kaspersky or Trend? I'll bet it was a few years ago. Latest versions (since 2009) of Norton have been improved beyond recognition - they install far quicker than Avast, or AVG, (Norton takes less than a minute & doesn't even require a restart) they use as little, & in AVG's case, less resources when running and finally, & more importantly, they provide complete protection, being not just an antivirus/antispyware. If you check the AV comparison sites Norton is always up there with Kaspersky & Trend. The only paid-for AV I would not recommend is McAfee.

For the average user Norton makes things very simple - any problems just click a button and it's cured, plus their on-line support is very good these days. For anyone doing anything financial on-line, & that is a large percentage of people) I would not rely on any of the free antiviruses.

I install & maintain systems with many different security programs on them on a daily basis, so I know what I'm talking about - try it for yourself.

Fine, everyone has their opinions, the point I was making was that certain posters will make sweeping statements about software that they have no recent experience of and are using out-dated biased opinions which help no-one. Symantec took on-board previous complaints about earlier versions of Norton and the resultant software is equal to the best paid-for, and surpasses free ones because of its useability and the extra features it has. As you use Norton 360 you will know about these of course - comprehensive firewall, identity protection, back-up scheduling - off-line and 2Gb free on-line if wanted, anti-phishing, network management tools, parental controls, rescue disk - all things that the average on-line user can make use of, & newer Nortons makes it easy to do. Updates are more than just daily, they appear whenever they are posted, often every couple of hours - the same as Kaspersky, which also has the same features as Norton.

I'm not affiliated to Norton in any way, I actually prefer Kaspersky as it has more flexibility if you want to tweak, but if anyone asks me about complete on-line protection for them & their family then I always recommend Norton and give my reasons - I do not slag off the opposition by just saying 'it's cr*p' which is what a lot of uninformed posters do.

I personally use Webroot Antivirus with Spysweeper and have for a number of years and it works for me very well without all of the nonsense, without all of the system slowing down, without obstructing all I want to do with my system. When I used Norton I had quite a number of infections and it appeared that every time I got something with Norton I needed to download some manual removal tool to clean out my system. The last time Norton detected something but could not remove it, I installed Spysweeper (Webroot's original program) and it detected it and removed it. As soon as Webroot came out with a complete package I got rid of Norton and my system ran MUCH faster and I stopped having problems and repeat infections. I have also much respect for Avast and I am running it on many computers at work for over a year without any problems and it works better than the corporate program I uninstalled. I also HAVE had some recent experience with Norton with computers that were performing lackluster and when I removed it and installed Avast and restored Windows Firewall the systems ran better, faster. Norton is trying to do too much apparently and it has become bloatware. Windows Firewall works just fine, especially since nearly everyone is also running a router with a hardware firewall as well. I pay for Webroot with confidence but I recommend Avast also with confidence for those who already paid too much for an inferior product. Many here have taken this advice and reported they were happy with their change. I am glad that Norton has improved recently since many people rely on it, but the company needs to keep its sights on its primary purpose and stream line it to do this better with a care for the system resources it uses.

I will not clog up this post with another comment on this subject!
