to the Norton 360 beta forum. If you're one of our team of beta testers you should by now have the test software safely installed on your computer from the download link I sent you recently.

As soon as you have Norton 360 running on your machine please post in this thread to tell us how your download and installation went. We're keen to know about any difficulties before we proceed further.

Please don't start new threads of your own - it will confuse the process. Once everyone has reported on a successful (or otherwise) installation we'll move on in a new thread.

Hi everyone
I finally arrived back in sunny Bangkok and amazing my PC started up first time despite having lain dormant for 6 months. I updated it with all the latest XP Pro updates and everything is running well.

I then tried to download the Beta using the link in the FE e-mail but I had to manually type the link in as it didn't work automatically.

I then reached the download site and filled up the necessary registration details and clicked next to download.

My download was then rejected by Norton as their export screening department blocked it. I then tried using the UK as my home rather than Thailand and got the same message. I then received 2 e-mails from Norton one giving me the Product Key and another telling me that there were no restrictions and to try again downloading.

I have tried many times now but I keep getting blocked and ending up in a loop. I now have the Product Key 4 times but still can't download.

I fired an e-mail off to Norton replying to theirs and they can find no technical reason why this is happening but they say they are working on it and will get back to me.

I will keep trying and catch up with the rest of you as soon as I am successful.

I downloaded the software and installed it with no real issues. I uninstalled my older version of Norton and disabled a backup AV program that I have. The install was able to complete.
It updated without any problems and auto set permissions for my programs. I was pleased that I did not have to manually correct any of the permissions.
