    For the simple reason that the price given is nearly 40-50% cheaper than the price on the UK Eset site for the AV/Smart Security. Then use the serial/key-file in the box for installing on-line.

    You are obviously not familiar with PC World; they do not have a renewal system for any software they sell.

    For potential new users in the UK I would have thought that this was a great way to jump aboard the NOD/ESET bandwagon, without the high initial cost of the first license.

    It's quite common. Resellers often cut their margins. It's all about a reseller enticing a customer "in through their doors" with a good deal on one product. Statistically, the customer will often end up browsing through the full range products offered buy the reseller and make orders on further products, sometimes things they never wanted in the first place.

    Also with v4, PCWorld has probably cut price further to clear stocks for new v5.
