Have copy of Norton Internet Security 2002 that I received w/ old Compaq computer. Will there be a problem if I install this to my new DELL???

gooley: If it's a stand alone product. I don't see why it would not work.
Doesn't your new Dell already have Norton installed by Dell?

no, it had mcafee. I just had to reinstall XP so thought I'd use Norton instead of Mcafee.

I'm sure you're aware that you can't have both of them on your computer at the same time.
I have had McAfee since 2000. I like it, however, Dell puts on a free trial of whatever virus program they can get cheapest. At the end of the trial period, you have to buy it.
Good luck

Thats what I got w/ the DELL (Mcafee) I decided against it as I've read alot of posts that were critical of of it ie: hogging resources etc. Just to be sure I'll go buy latest Norton just to prevent any possible conflicts. Thanks again!
