Hi,

You will need to activate it on each systems! Since these apps are licenced for one system only, I doubt you will be able to activate it on more than one system!

Does this mean i still can not install them on any other computer? You said you Doubt i will be able to activate it on more than one system. How can i find out for sure? Apart from trying it obviously!
What about on other computers in my house. As they are networked and share the same internet connection, won't that mean it will assume it is being reinstalled on to the same pc (as far as microsoft & norton are concerned?)

Thank you.

Hi,

The activation key given by Microsoft is based on an algorithm using the combination of your hardware (and other things). If your hardware is the same on the other systems, you should be able to use that key, but if not, you will need to activate to product again. Since the products are for 1 installation as per the licence agreement, I doubt Microsoft or Symantec will allow it! (unless you pay for it!)
