    If you format and reinstall windows from scratch and then install Norton, it will be good fot another year. This info is stored in the registry and the registry is deleted during a format. If you plan on reinstalling overtop of the current installation, then your programs will remain and you'll have to buy a new Norton or buy a subscription.
