Windows 8 is not listed.
Buying a new Laptop and it has WIndows 8 on it just wondering if I need a newer version of Norton 360 for it to work with WIndows 8 I have a 3 User Norton 360 5.0 and only used 2 of the 3 from it. Just don't want to waste time attempting to use it with W8 when it might have issues.
What version of Norton 360 works just in case?
Visited Norton Website and if you follow the links to the WIndows 8 info there they say it will work with XP, W7 and W8 not getting a good feeling about but have to have some kind of Security running with all the worms, Trojan Horse and stuff it has block over the years would rather be "SAFE" then sorry. It is like using this forum my back space does not show where the cusor is and it is when editing a reply but that seems to be common on some forums out there you just have to continue on once you realize it.
Thought this would be known espcially here now that Windows 8 has been out for a month others must have some kind of security software running with Windows 8 but it appears not to be know yet!
Just have to try and see not good but I guess that is just technology these days many chanes one has to take!
They have their own forums and support system. This version came out well before any version of 8 and as we see, 8 is not a version of Windows with much support for prior Windows.
You have 5.0 and the current version is 6.0. Symantec writes the following:
"Before you upgrade to Windows 8, make sure that you have the latest version of the Norton product. If you do not have the latest version, you may see a compatibility error directing you to get the latest version. For more information on installing the latest version, read How to update your Norton product to the lastest version."
Another ding against 5.0
