Thread: AntiVirus Expired but new virus definitions

  1. #1

    Beitrag AntiVirus Expired but new virus definitions

    My antiVirus program(northon) expired and i have to give "some" money for new version because in other way you can't download new definitios..but it's to much money for me so I returned my computers clock 2 years backward and now i can dowload new definitions.. is that okay to do or it's something from what i can get punished ..i'm just curious

    Well, let's see, Symantec requires you to pay a fee for continuing to use Norton AV. You're not doing that, but instead you're continuing to use it for free. How would that be legal?

    And once again in shorter, simpler and less words: That is illegal.

    i think that the 1 year subscription permit automatic updates, when it finish you can continue using the antivirus, but you can not use the automatic updates function.

    I think so, cause you bought and antivirus + 1 year of updates.

    You can use the antivirus all the time you want.

    The AV doesn't expire, but the definition updates do. Just go download a free AV like AVG or Avast so you won't be violating the ToS.

    so..It's better not to do this if i have other free antiviruses... maybe this one is better than other, I mean better than free antivirus (because I'm "paying" for that ) and I just want to feel safe.. !?

    Umm, Ghost isn't an Anti-Virus....

    Norton Ghost 10

    *EDIT*
    I see, you meant to type Norton Anti-Virus, but mistyped Ghost. Though it's an older version (2005), it will probably serve his purposes for now.
