    I often see links posted up where one can buy security software on-line apart from Amazon. So one might say..."Look cheap such & such AV this week at Buyonline dot com."

    Can someone give me a link or two to reputable online stores please? From where i am I'm not having much success with google in my search.

    thanks

    eBay can be hit and miss. Many of those "serial code by email" sales are created by keygens. Boxed products are generally fine.

    But, I don't see the point of buying boxed security software. I think sooner rather than later boxed software will go. Mostly you get a CD with a tiny installer, an expensive box and there's a lot of shipping involved - if we're thinking about environmental issues, this has to be the most "expensive" way of producing a product.

    Then people put these empty boxes on the shelves to get dusty. Very odd. I can understand it if you're buying Adobe Creative Suite, but not AVG Internet Security.

    You can just download the trial from the supplier's website and find a cheap download serial code. Look after the environment :)

    Thanks Andy. We've launched http://giveaway.downloadcrew.com to give away the odd full app plus 24-hour only discounted products. ie. products on there should be cheaper than the stores, but only for 24 hours.

    store.majorgeeks.com / store.v3.co.uk (majorgeeks is powered by v3's store iirc) often have really good deals on all kinds of software, including AV. example: they had a deal on the webroot 2011 complete product 3 pc licenses for $14.99 last month or the month before (they can be used to activate secureanywhere)
