Re: Norton 360 ESD and TW

Hi John,


Welcome to the Norton Community!:smileyhappy: 


Sorry for the confusion!


There are two ways you can purchase the Norton products.


1) ESD version


2) Retail version 


  • ESD stands for Electronic Software Download, which is nothing but the Norton product that you purchase from our website with license. [Electronically Downloadable version]


  • Retail Version is nothing but the CD version of Norton product that you purchase from the local store like Best Buy, Costco, Staples, Fry's etc. 


  • Now, TW stands for Trial Ware, This is also similar to the ESD version (a downloadable version) but you are not purchasing a license. A Norton Trial Ware will be valid for 15 Days or 30 Days. [You can Activate it with your valid Norton 360 Product key]


Your Norton 360 Product key should work with both these versions. 



Please let me know if you have more questions.



We appreciate your contributions to the forums.:smileyhappy:
