My moms subscription to PC Cillin ran out, so I loaded her up with some free applications. I first tried to install AOL Active Virus Shield. Everything went smoothly until it was time to activate the product. No matter how many times I tried to enter the activation code they emailed me, the product would not acitvate. I kept copying and pasting in the code, but the program simply would not activate. Anyone else have that problem? I ended up going with Avast, which is another great option. I was just disappointed that I could nto get the program to activate. I was hoping to try it out on my moms machine to see if it my be a good option for my PC.
