moving norton to another pc

Hi folks
I have Norton Internet Security 2009 (3 license version) installed on 3 pcs. One of these has recently 'died', and I have purchased a new laptop to replace it. I am currently running a pre-installed 30 day trial firewall but would like to install the Norton software (I have the disk). Will it install OK and work properly even though it will, in effect, be installed on 4 pcs?
Thanks in advance for any help.

Since it is a retail version ...

that can be installed on any three of your choice PCs and since the one computer is "dead" and being replaced it is only going to be used on the threee functioning computers so such use is legal by the Norton EULA.

if there is any problem during the installation (there shouldn't be) on the new computer simply call Symantec Support or Customer Service and explain why it is installed on a different computer and they will be happy to assist.

EULA agreement

Its at Norton's discretion to allow you to get a 4th system as only 3 are allowed. As Edward mentioned, you may need to contact Norton to get it to work or proceed onwards. Norton does keep track of these things. I know you mentioned one system is kaput, but Norton only knows 3 have already been installed, so you're bumping the EULA agreement. Norton tends to stick to its guns as it were, just be prepared for bad news vs. good.
