Norton Internet Security renewal flaw


HXP

Likes # 0

Getting a reminder from Nortin Internet security that in 28 days my licence will expire which is fine, What isn't so good is if i renew now the remaining 28 days is NOT added to my new subscription - seems unfair as i want to renew and forget about it. Could PC Advisor ask them the question why the remaining time on my last years subscription can't be caiied over - seems counter productive to loyal customers .... or is it best for me to take the FREE Kaspersky internet security offered by Barclays and ditch Norton ?

I have been using Norton for many moons on my main PC but AVG free on two laptops and an older desktop. I have just taken the plunge, uninstalled Norton,without any problem using their uninstaller, and installed AVG 2013 paid version on all - £19 from Amazon, 2 year license for 4 PC's. So far so good - and much lighter than Norton.

if you do decide to renew norton do not renew direct with norton, get a disc from amazon,pcworld,wh smiths, novatech etc these stores often do less than half price deals.

The big question you have to ask yourself is why bother with Norton? There are , as others have pointed out, just as capable free products
