    Hi, guys:

    I just bought NIS2007 in our local shop. When I go back ,I find Norton360 is released...... Oh,no, I bought the wrong edition.Can I use the NIS2007 activation code to activate Norton360?? Upgrading to Norton360 is free or not?

    If not ,I need to ask for a refund....Maybe Norton360 is better than NIS2007...

    PLZ help!!Thank you!! ;)

    as lodore rightly said..............nis 2007 is more than enough for a home pc and i don't think you need those additional features......

    Hi Brian

    Don't be scared you bought the right product. Norton 360 has a lot of things you don't use.
    NIS2007 works great on most pc's

    i agree, NIS 2007 is the better version, more settings, right click scanning and no useless backup tool.

    Did you know Symantec is owned and operated by Tiny Green and Blue Pixies and Elves from Antarctica :blink: They shuttle about like mice,and quietly rush to your computers assistance as if by magic,should it get attacked by Blue Meanies and stuff :blink: They have a leader called The Nortonaitor,who looks quite similar to Schwarz Arnienegger who looks surprisingly enough looks just like Arnold Schwarzenegger, must be his twin or something :blink: They pounce on Viruses and Trojan thingies, and bash them with sticks, untill they surrender :blink:

    i wonder why there is no right-click scanning option available? and why was it not pointed out by beta-testers during the testing period?

    also,you can't just scan for virus/spyware,you have to go through the entire process where it will first scan for your pc's health........

    i am sure symantec will fix that in future updates...

    good news for norton users is....

    symantec is a massive company, so their software is sooooo easy to get cheap,

    http://cgi.ebay.co.uk/Norton-Intern...0098605942QQcategoryZ3805QQrdZ1QQcmdZViewItem

    this is just one i found (in seconds, im sure there are cheaper out there too)

    £15 / 22 Euro / $29 delivered

    this is all i paid for my dr.web upgrade, yet this is a suite, and a very good one too so price doesnt affect quality here,

    if i didnt have the Doctor,(yes its a big IF,,, i love the doctor too much)
    £15 ... i would definatly be using Norton IS 2007 on at least 2 of my machines.

    i don't think so, because they aren't the same product.

    I tried but didn't work.
    Same thing as the antivirus key won't work on the NIS

    Interesting Paradigm Shift underway: (slightly anyway heh) gone from debating how much crap NIS might be towards whether in fact it is perhaps, just a bit, possibly, shading towards, leaning towards, maybe, despite some issues, inspite of what my friends say: even a touch useful and satisfying.

    :eek: ;)

    Don't go for Norton 360. NIS 2007 will keep you very safe. 360 is bloated and still misses some crucial stuff.

    I got a free license key as well.
    I'm not a gold beta tester. I've been testing KIS 6 from the beginning and help translating the Dutch version of KIS

    Hmm: maybe noy in public yet: I'm not that brave lol
    Agree, from what I see, there is no real reason to go to 360 : seems to be more of a "baby steps" app.

    @bryan 8888 IMO you've got the right tool. Dont sweat it. :thumb:
