    obviously NIS09 doesn't support for windows 7; i bought a copy of NIS09 before moving on to W7 so there are still hundreds of days left. after googled there was a pre-release version which i thought my key would work and let me have NIS on my W7 for the remaining of the valid period.

    nope.

    i asked if i am better off with other IS softwares, "yes, none other support w7 yet" was the respond. (AVG listed their copy as W7 compatible upon a 3second search.)

    so there i am, wasted x amount of money on a company that doesn't care for its customer.

    good bye norton, forever that is.

    is it that difficult to honor me a code that would last exactly the amount of remaining period on my copy? instead they chose to lose a customer forever(and anyone around me as well) regardless of situations.

    good job symmentec

    You will be eligible for a free compatibility upgrade once Windows 7 is officially released.
    Look here http://www.symantec.com/norton/theme.jsp?themeid=windows7

    You screwed up by not doing more research before trying to use your existing key with a beta Norton product on Windows 7. Get over it and stop blaming Symantec for your screw-up. Either go back to Vista, or install a different security suite/anti-virus on Windows 7.

    which is better to potential customers?

    "14days of trial on OS that won't arrive until months later"
    or
    "6months+(as i was late in W7 while using mac) of free testing until the OS arrives months later"

    why do i feel compel to reply you anyways? oh i know, that's because it is silly!

    As a Symantec customer I was surprised how late they were in making NIS work with 7, mostly because just about every other AV program (including the free ones) worked fine with 7 RC.

    I'm using Avira on 7 RC and it's been great. I recommend switching to them, even the free Personal edition is awesome and has a higher detection rate than NIS anyhow.

    Who compels you to use NIS 2009 with Windows 7 RC? There is no need for a major security software company to fully support a RC OS.

    Download version 16.5, which works with Windows 7, unlike earlier editions, e.g. 16.0 or 16.2. Download it from Softpedia.
