NIS 2010 trial

Hi

I need a new firewall so my intention was to get it from NIS 2010 trial until I found that a credit card number was required to download it. Of course it is possible to cancel the automatic billing before the trial period ends but...  I WILL CERTAINLY NOT PUT MYSELF AT THE MERCY OF A SYSTEM THAT CAN IGNORE MY REQUESTS AFTER IT GOT MY CARD NUMBER.

I find SUSPICIOUS this kind of practice and it is not giving me confidence in the quality of the product!

I may just get it from a pirate shack instead of Norton...

ANYWAYS... My question is:

After the trial period is over, will the firewall be still working?

All i want is the firewall...

Re: NIS 2010 trial

Hi 100bugs,

After the trial period is over, you will have to purchase NIS 2010 in order to continue using it - the whole product, to my knowledge, will deactivate itself once the trial period has elapsed - firewall and everything. 

If you don't want to sign up for the trial version with your credit card number, then you can fetch the 15-day trial version directly from here, save it to your computer and install it:

http://www.norton.com/nis10

You will need to type in your Norton product key to turn it into a full version and have it pick up your subscription, if you have got one. If you have a Norton product key, then you can copy it from your Norton account:

Re: NIS 2010 trial

Thanks for the link yaso...

The file is downloading at this moment but I noticed the word "upgrade" inside the file name NIS-UPGRADE-ESD-17-6-0-32-EN.exe.

So I expect it will not install if a prior version is not present on the computer.

If this is the case then I will simply go get a free, 100% working copy at a pirate shack so I will have plenty of time to try it.

Thanks for the heads up in case you need some support later on.

HI 100bugs,

Just to clarify. The link has the word upgrade in it but it is a full installation package. The upgrade in the filename just indicates that it is not the original NIS 2010 retail package. It would install even if NIS was not already intalled on your computer.

Hope this helps.

Re: NIS 2010 trial

Thanks for the answer Allen.

I will then install it and see...

As for my previous post refering to a pirate copy, i see yaso didn't like it.

I'm sorry but he must understand my disapointment with norton because they don't make it easy to try their software.

First they require a credit card number and second i get a file that i thought it was an upgrade ONLY.

Recognize it's a lot easier to get a pirate copy...

Anyways, thanks to both of you.

Re: NIS 2010 trial

In the interest of accuracy, Yaso did not mention anything about your intended illegal activities.

If you read carefully, it was my post that referenced it.

Re: NIS 2010 trial

100bugs,

I don't agree that Symantec makes it difficult to run their trial software. They ask for credit card which makes it easier to transition into a normal subscription and it is very easy to opt out if you find you don't like the software.

You run pirated software at your own risk and I will also go on record and state that it is wrong, both morally and legally and I do not under any circumstances condone it.

Re: NIS 2010 trial

Actually, last night I was preparing one of my systems to install NIS and I was shocked that you now need to input a credit card number.  Personally I think it's very bad marketing

I already have a couple unused activations for a 3 license pack and was not going to put my credit card number in for a download.

I serched the forum here and found the link to the "upgrade" download but didn't get that either thinking it really was an upgrade.  I ended up having to remote into another system of mine and transfer over an old NIS 2010 setup.

It seems to me by requiring a credit card and having the user input all the other info would result in less people trying the product, they should make it easier and not harder to try the products.

Re: NIS 2010 trial

Sorry for the mistake about yaso. It happened because when I wrote my reply, only one post was displayed so i could not verify who wrote what.

=> Forum design inconvenient... Nothing to make an horror story out of it!

Regarding my comment about a pirate copy, you should be a little bit smarter and see in it the expression of my disapointment instead of falsely taking for granted that I AM RUNNING A PIRATE COPY and condemn me. If that were the case, i would have gone directly to TPB and NEVER posted here.

I'm glad that at least one of you (Dave) understood my bad feelings about the credit card number requirement, the misleading word "upgrade" inside the file's name and also the reaction of a disapointed customer to go see elsewhere (competitors or pirates).

Norton doesn't have the best products and it has plenty of competitors so they should do everything they can to attract customers instead of trying to trap them into an automated subscription at the tryal procedure.

Re: NIS 2010 trial

In case anyone is unfamiliar with the new policy:

Opt-Out Trialware
30 Day Opt-Out Trialware gives you the option to try out Norton products for free. Simply enter a credit or debit card to set up your account. After you place your order you will have 30 days to download and install Norton™ Internet Security 2010 completely free of charge. At the end of the 30 day trial period your card will automatically be charged the standard 12 month subscription fee of $69.99 (plus applicable taxes) so that you can continue to use and be protected by your product for an additional 12 months. The automatic charge will appear on your card statement within approximately 3 days from the end of your 30 day trial period. To avoid being charged, simply cancel your Opt-Out Trialware order at any time before the 30 day free trial period ends by contacting customer support or by following these directions (also available in your order confirmation email). If you do decide to cancel during the 30 day trial period your card will not be charged, but you will also lose Norton protection once your product expires.

Re: NIS 2010 trial

This is exactly what i understood and this is exactly what i don't like.

What if:

1- for any reasons i forget or can not cancel prior to the tryal term?

2- for any reasons, the cancellation is not recorded ot norton or can not reach norton?

3- etc

The answer is: I will get a one year subscription that i don't want...

Also, giving such valuable information as a credit or debit card number without buying a product is certainly not a good practice and it is a disaster on the safety side.
