What a joke and now have all the trouble of uninstalling and re-installing another package. Typical Symantec never give much away.

Crap service if you ask me just a form of cheap advertising and gets Microsoft to do the advertising for them.

Sorry Symantec never read this post in the forum on there site but still a pain I had to look for it.....
Activation says 14days remaining - Norton 360 Public Beta - Norton Community

Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit

I'm running Avira AntiVir Premium 8.2. Works great in Win7 64 bit. It also had the highest detection rate at AV-Comparatives.

Avira Premium Security Suite 9 Beta also works well on 32 bit Win7. Limited support for 64 bit now.....full 64 bit in later builds.

AVG Free Version 8.0.233. Seems to work just fine. Surprised that Windows Live OneCare doesn't work.
