Most, if not all reputable companies will replace software / product keys

Microsoft will replace any of their software if you damage or lose it

Glad you have sorted it

Thank You for letting me know

well not cool i guess.... they are giving me a hard time, now they want me to send them the cd and my original proof of purchase, which i dont have because i sent it in for rebate.. when i purchased the norton i had to sign up i told them to look that up it should prove i bought it, grrrr anyhow so im back to asking if anyone can direct me to some substitute product key numbers, i can use in the mean time thank u

Obviously we cannot get involved in providing a substitue product key

I would install Zone Alarm free then turn the XP firewall off, then download AVG Free

This will give you the option of having a firewall and anti virus programme while chasing Symantec to get the original product key

canadianchicklet...

Do you still have the computer with Norton installed? You can retrieve the product key from that by opening the application, clicking on Help and Support, choosing "About Norton Internet Security" from the menu, and clicking on the "Internet Security" tab.

If you can get the computer to run at all, even in Safe mode, recovering that key would sure save you a lot of aggrivation.... :tazz:
