Hi Sea_Monster:

If you still have a current licence for 2010, you can go to your Norton account, click on your current product, and a button to "Buy a Key" will show up.  You will be able to click that to purchase another subscription.  You will be able to install 2011 and activate it with the 2010 key.

Also, in checking the website, I see that 2011 is already available for purchase.  Check what gets you the best deal.

Keep in mind that there may be some very good sales in your area on the 2010 version that will be less expensive than purchasing from the website.

Buy a Key - I was wondering what is that for?  I would assumed the prices will be really really cheap.

Also, I found on Amazon there is a one user, one pc subscription. Once the subscription is over you can perhaps buy a five pc subscription or a 4 pc one.

Sea Monster,

<< I would assumed the prices will be really really cheap. >>

Unfortunately the renewal prices on the Norton website are never as cheap as outside purchase can be since as the Manufacturer Norton will not seem to compete with its authorized retailers ....

You can buy a retail 3PC version of NIS 2010 effectively for $0 this week if you check out the wekkend flyers of the various high street computer stores ...

Don't install from the disk but just use the KEY when you are a couple of days from the end of your present subscription and it will give you 366 days whether you are on 2010 or 2011 by then ....

That will deal with the existing 3 PCs. So far as the 4th is concerned, Norton do not offer a 4 PC licence but they do offer a 5 PC licence so you could do the arithmatic on using that on 4 PCs and comparing the per PC cost with alternatives.

It might appear that you could buy 2 copies of that $0 offer but you almost certainly will not get the Upgraders' rebate on more than one and I don't know about the other discount -- you'd have to check the actual rebate form and see if it is restricted to one per household as I know sometimes happens.

But if you want to do it the easy way I'd get in touch with Customer Support by chat and say you want their help in getting a single PC version licence. I suspect the easiest way will turn out to be when your new PC arrives (if it's commercially built does it come with a trial version of NIS? If so use that up first) and just install the NIS 2011 by downloading the file onto that PC and then tell it you want to Renew Now . But I've not had to do it so I don't know for certain exactly how that operates.
