Recently I bought a subscription to Norton

antivirus. The license promised me 3 copies. After downloading the first copy

it was like rocket science downloading the next copy so I just bought another one.

I contacted Norton for advice on how to download my other two copies and I gave

them all of the information from my purchase. I spent a total of one hour and

twenty minutes and below was the conversation. Please excuse the typos as we

were in chat and I rushed. Also, I have purposefully hidden some of my personal

information.

No. I want you to me how

I can do it. Step by step. It should not be that hard for me to do.

EDT 2011)>



Alright, I can provide

the steps to download the Norton program on the another computer.







Jacob(Wed May 11 06:37:23

EDT 2011)>



You need to download the

product from this link http://www.norton.com/n360s_5



 



 



 



and save it onto your

Desktop first.Once the download gets completed,



 



 



 



you have to run the file

that you downloaded in order to complete the installation of the Norton

product.



 



 



 



The installation will get

completed on its own and after the installation you will get a prompt to

activate the product. When you get the prompt you have to enter the Product Key

and complete the activation of the product.







ME(Wed May 11 09:40:00

EDT 2011)>



That's all I asked and

it took 42 minutes to get the answer. WOW. I am sorry but that is horrible

Customer Service. If I post this whole chat online I think others would agree.

It should not take this long







Jacob(Wed May 11 06:40:51

EDT 2011)>



I am sorry for the delay.







ME(Wed May 11 09:41:05

EDT 2011)>



I tried to download this

all night last night and kept getting error messages. Finally I just bought

ANOTHER license under the email address mME@cox.net. After all these problems

can you refund that one charge?







Jacob(Wed May 11 06:42:05

EDT 2011)>



Let me check the

information for you.

YOU'RE INSANE

AUTHOR: zb420 - (United States of America)

Who gives a darn about that conversation... YOU COULD HAVE CONDENSED THE SPACING! It's a typical outsource conversation.

...by the way, Microsoft makes a MUCH BETTER virus program for free than Norton does. Norton is a pig on your system resourses and slows your system down a lot.
