I have been using N 360 Ver 4 during 2011. I purchased Version 5 on a retail disk and tried to install it without uninstalling Ver 4.
My system stalls on the Initialize screen yet my computer indicates I now have Ver 5 installed. N360 is still counting down my Version 4.0 subscription (5 days remaining( and I need to enter the new product code. The store clerk claimed I didn't need to uninstall the old version. Do I have to
wait until the subscription expires to do the install and enter the code? Would appreciate any help.

According to Norton's FAQ site, it says the following in regards to removing an older product before installing a new version:

The best way of installing any Norton product, including Norton 360, is to uninstall any antivirus programs that are installed, and then to install the latest version of Norton 360.

In regards to having a version that is close to expire and then purchasing a new version (but still showing the old activation in effect) it said:

The best option is to let the old subscription expire and then to enter the new Norton 360 activation key.
