Installed on an older XP machine and a newer Win 7 one.

Install was fast... uninstall of MSE on the XP and McAfee on the newer (I'd just installed that, as it's effectively a new Win 7 install, and I felt it ought to have something to recognise for an uninstall). Up & running on both, with no incident.

Download went well with new link provided by FE. Bigger download than I had anticipated. Everything installed perfectly and it took off my previous Virus and Firewall. I immediately updated it on the update centre which took seconds and everything appears to be working fine.

Installed on Win 7 64 bit quad core with 8GB mem.

Chrome crashed when Norton was installing. Coincidence? Doubtful.

Other than that it was painless enough. Automatic installation of a tool bar in Chrome is annoying. I try my level best to keep my browser screens as uncluttered as possible.

Downloaded from PCA site and everything went very smoothly.

Norton deleted the AVG files even though they were not active. Is this really necessary or just Norton getting rid of the opposition?.

Did a full scan of all drives. It took a bit longer than I wanted but there again the computer it is installed on is beginning to show its age.

Uninstalled MSE, 360 installed with no issues at all, just as quickly as I'd expect for a post-2009 Norton product. Win7 x64.

Installed but had to manually install previous version of Norton 360 V5 before I could install, after that I found out that my DVD drive no longer worked.

This could just be a coincidence and that the two things are not linked but after installing the Beta version of Norton it flagged this problem up when I ran a diagnostic report from within Norton. The drive was working correctly just 2 days before the download and install of the Beta.

But to get DVD drive to be recognised by PC and with the help of people in the helproom managed to get it back by altering registry.

As I said the 2 things may not be connected.

Windows 7 64 bit.
