Re: Activation

If a pc doesn't have internet access then it doesn't need an anti virus program,. All anti virus programs need to update daily via the internet. If your pc never goes online then how can it get infected unless its connected to other pc's via a network.

The computer can infected by the virus through the transfer of files using pendrive from other computers. So, an anti virus software is needed . I think most of the anti virus company provides download for the virus definition file.

znmng, I regret to tell you that starting with the 2008 products and Norton 360 version 2, there is no way to activate your product without an Internet connection. If you can briefly put the machine on the Internet during Activation you shouldn't need to connect after that.

Re: Activation

I already said if the pc is connected to other pc's you need an anti virus. You might want to look into a free anti virus such as Avast or AVG. But keep in mind updates come daily. Sometimes 3 times a day. You will need to be downloading the updates then transferring them over to the non internet connected pc on a daily basis. Sounds to time consuming to me. Is there any reason why you do not want the pc to be connected to the internet?
