Upgrade which first, Norton or Windows ?

Some advice please for a non-tech.

I'm ready to replace Windows 8.1 with Windows 10.
I also need to renew my subscription with Norton, from Norton Security to Norton Security Deluxe 5 Device.

Any advice on which I should do first please, Norton or Windows ?

Re: Upgrade which first, Norton or Windows ?

Hello

I would first purchase your Norton Deluxe. After you have installed Windows 10, I would then install Norton Security Deluxe. and enter in your new key. Please be aware that entering a new key will erase any remaining days from your current Norton Security. You might be able to get back those days by contacting Norton customer support at www.norton.com/chat . After you have your Norton installed and activated and up to date, then you can do the Windows updates.

Please come back and let us know how you did.

Thanks.

Success always occurs in private and failure in full view. Windows 10 Pro 64 bit Norton Core Security Plus 22.19.8.65 Core Firmware 282 Chrome latest version.

...by "replace"....you mean in-place upgrade via Windows Update or via Media Creation Tool upgrade now or via clean install W10 ISO or new machine with W10 OEM or...?
On same machine...."do first"...IMO is create Windows 8.1 backup system image n' system repair disc.
