Reactivate NAV 12 ?

I recently encountered the 'Could not load scan engine" problem (link), so I uninstalled NAV and downloaded a 30-day Trial Version. I already used the SUDO command to remove the keychain and restarted.

According to this forum, I then have to reactivate NAV, but how do I do this ? I guess I'm supposed to enter the Product Key from my purchased version somewhere, but I can't find where exactly.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Re: Reactivate NAV 12 ?

The product should ask you to re-activate after your trial period ends. Alternatively, you can launch the Norton AntiVirus application, and click on the "Activate now" link that should be present on the main window.

Re: Reactivate NAV 12 ?

Mr McGann,

I already tried to solve this problem using a trial version, but after it expired I had no other option besides purchasing Norton AntiVirus. Since I recently paid for a one-year-subscription, I don't feel like doing this again.

Also, as you can see on the screenshot I included, there doesn't seem to be any link on the main window that would allow me to reactivate the application.

Actually, I'm not sure how to proceed from here...
