I am going to get a new PC shortly. I already have a licence for this years Norton Internet security for 3 PC's so intend ordering without anything from the PC manufacturer pre-installed. Is there anyway of copying the programme from my current PC and installing it (can't see how) as otherwise would have to go to the Norton website, download and add licence key etc. etc. This will take some time. Appreciate any suggestions.

I belive that would not be possible as it is an installed program which puts a multitude of entries in to the registry and could not be fully or acurately copied. Best bet is, if you are getting a nice new machine with everything newly installed and fresh, then I would download and install NIS, this way everything is a new install and evrything should "play nicely" together.

The only way is to download, install with license key unless you have an original cd. You cannot copy from one machine to the other.

Thanks Press Man and Woolwell. I thought as much -my only concern was potential vulnerability whilst downloading and activating. Suppose can use Windows firewall for short time? Best
