Removing a defunct computer from my Norton Activation.


This is my first post so please forgive me.

been a happy Norton customer for a long time.

I purchased 360 when it first came out, and at that point, my machine was already several years old.

Unfortunately last year, my computer sufferred a total failure. To cut a long story short, built a new computer, installed 360, and installed 360 on my sons computer.

But now I am looking to add a 3rd machine, but I do not have any available activations left

I did a subject search and did indeed find this thread, which seemed relevant


The only difference is that I do not have the option to "remove" norton 360, since the machine has assigned to the junk pile and hard-disk formatted.

So I have 2 "active" machines in our household, yet all 3 subscriptions are "used" - how do I recover the activation that is associted with a computer that has been dead for a year?

Thanks in advance.

Hi chrisfieldhouse

Welcome to the Norton Community Forums

The best course of actions would be to contact Customer Support via this free chat link


Explain the issue and they will correct the activation count for you.
