Re: Renewal price

Hi Norton Fighter

I am in the UK and your link only gives the price in Dollars and I need it in £ sterling.

Also my version is not on the dropdown list. It only lists to version 6.0 and I'm using version 21

When you are on the United States page, click on United States and select from Europe > United Kingdom and then you'll get the main page and can click on Renewals.

But note that you can often get much better prices than on line renewal if you buy a new copy from a reputable source online, like Amazon, and use the KEY as your existing subscription is about to expire. But make sure you buy from an authorized dealer and don't use the key until your subscription is about to expire, say a couple of days before, since it wipes out unexpired time.

Note also that Norton 360, NIS and NAV have been replaced by one product: Norton Security that comes in two versions: without and with online backup.

It's only just been released so I would not rush to get it .... let others work out any bugs or difficulties. For the first time the upgrade from what you have to this new Norton Security is not entirely free since you have to buy a first subscription to it and then unexpired time should be transferred, so in reality you are only doing up front what you would do later ......

If you want to there is a trial 30 day version you can download if you have a spare computer to try it out on. But ask if you intend to do this since there are some pitfalls to avoid ....

Re: Renewal price

Good advice, Hugh. My current license to NIS still runs well into December, so I'm not really feeling the pressure about having to take a decision soon. Meanwhile, I'll have to make up my mind on staying aboard or jumping ship to some other virus protection software. I know for sure it will be painful for me as an old, satisfied user of Norton, but hey, even marriages break sometimes, even late in life, in spite of the pain... 

Now, I'm trying to remember what the difference is between "renewing" and "updating". The reason is I absolutely want to keep my Vault local, as opposed to online. Now, the last time I had to buy a new license, someone showed me how to apply the new license and not be automatically thrown to the "cloud", but I'm having trouble either remembering how to do it or finding the thread where this was discussed at the time. 

Basically, can I buy the new license and wait until one or two days before my current license expires and then apply it and still not lose the local vault? Or does it keeping the vault local require any extra steps?

Many thanks for guidance.

Re: Renewal price

Hello LinYu2
Renewal using the same product key ~ remaining days are added in.
Renewal with new key ~ new subscription period is activated ~ remaining days are not added in. 

Basically, can I buy the new license and wait until one or two days before my current license expires and then apply it and still not lose the local vault? Or does it keeping the vault local require any extra steps?

Yes...exactly.  Buy the new license and wait until one or two days before your current license expires and then apply it and you will not lose the local vault.   All you are doing is renewing your subscription.  You are not updating or upgrading your product.

Re: Renewal price

Thanks, bjm_... You to the rescue, once again!...

That's what I'll do when expiration time approaches. Then I'll have plenty of time to determine what's my best bet...

Cheers!

Re: Renewal price

Either way, you do not need to reinstall the product and you will retain your local vault.

Even if you do reinstall, you can maintain the local vault. I have even maintained the local vault after installing the new Norton Security with Backup.

If you ever have to reinstall, check back here and we will ensure you are able to stay local.

Things happen. Export/Backup your Identity Safe data.
