NIS 2009 and Existing Subscriptions
I am confused by some of the posts here and just wanted to see if someone can clarify this for me. A lot of people here are discussing how to download NIS 2009 to replace NIS 2008. Most posts don't say whether people are buying a new NIS 2009 to replace the old one or not. But in one post, someone said the NIS 2008 key code works with 2009 also and advised the poster to buy a copy of NIS 2008 and then download NIS 2009 to actually do the installation. That makes is sound like it might be okay to replace your NIS 2008 with NIS 2009 on an existing subscription, but that's still unclear.
I have 17 months left on my NIS 2008 subscription. My issue is that I would like the faster product that impacts my computer's performance less, but I also don't want to throw away nearly 1 1/2 years of a service that I've paid for. Is it the case that, as part of my subscription, Symmantec allows me to install NIS 2009 and complete the subscription with that product or does the NIS 2008 key only work if that key has never been activated before? Thanks.
