Norton Internet Security/Norton AntiVirus 2010 Beta has NOT OFFICIALLY BEGUN - UPDATED

Hi all,

First, let me apologize for the confusion and hope that I can be as detailed as possible.

Late last night, I received an email from a customer asking about 2010. Eventually I was able to determine through the email that the Public Beta Pages were fully live, with the ability to register for the public beta and download a pre-release version of the software.

First, let me state that the software is not quite ready for Public Beta. The build that is posted is an early Alpha build that is now much older than the build we are testing with internally. You should not download this build at this time, as it's simply not at the qualitiy we would like for public distribution. I don't want all of you to have to put up with all the kinks we still need to work out for the pre-beta builds.

We're working to figure out why this was done ahead of schedule and doing our best to make the corrections.

I don't have much more information at this time, but I'll keep everyone updated.

As for right now, it's advised that you do not download the Public Beta build until an offical announcment has been made.

If you have any questions, please post them on this thread:

I'll update with more information as soon possible.

All,

The Norton Internet Security and Norton AntiVirus 2010 beta pages were made public this past week, and some customers were able to download what appeared to be betas of the products.  Upon entering the product key supplied to them via email, these customers received an “Invalid Product Key” message. 

These pages were being used for internal testing only, and they were inadvertently made public.  The pages are no longer publicly available.  Norton Internet Security and Norton AntiVirus 2010 betas will be available shortly, and we’ll let the public know via the Symantec website and the Norton User Forum as soon as they are ready for download.
