Norton 2012 test - let's get started


Forum Editor

Likes # 0

Welcome to those of you who were selected to test the beta release of Norton 2012. I need to start by offering an apology for the delay in getting this test under way - you'll be aware that we recently re-launched our website, and frankly we've all been pretty busy dealing with the inevitable glitches and tweaks.

We're finally ready to go however, so let's make a start.

All of you should have downloaded and installed the software, and you have probably had a chance to try it out. What we would like to know in this thread is how the installation went. If you encountered any installation problems please post about them here. Do not post on any other aspects of the software, and please do not start your own thread. Experience has shown that the test will work better if we all step through the various scenarios together.

Once we have the installation situation covered we'll start a new thread in which we will investigate performance.

That's all from me for now - over to you.

Installed smoothly on XP, previously running MSE, no warning that some components were still running in the background, however no problems caused by not uninstalling MSE 1st.

All went without a hitch. I used the Norton removal tool to uninstall NIS 2011 and install took about 4 minutes. It even kept my identity safe settings and details despite the previous uninstall - I had backed up anyway.

Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium.

Downloaded and installed without problems, very smooth installation. I uninstalled MS Security Essentials first though.

Downloaded a couple of weeks ago and it installed quickly and smoothly. Running Windows 7 Home Premium 32 bit with 4 GB Memory and 2 very large 1TB hard drives. Only a slight problem when activating the product key. It said it couldn't do it and to try again later when in fact it had done it.
