I extremely new here as I got sick and tired of Norton System works and decided to switch to a simpler, better security suite with high hopes on Zone Alarm.
Here is my system specs;
AMD Athlon 62 X2 4800 Dual Core
ASUS A8N Premium MB
2GB DDR MEM
MS XP Home SP2
2- ASUS 6600GT VC's in SLI Mode
Norton Systemworks 2006 with Antivirus and Firewall removed (Kept only the system tools)
Ad Aware SE Personal
Spybot Search & Destroy
Ok, I purchased a retail box from my local Fry's store about a week ago and I have finally had time to sit and install it. I ran the disk after I removed the Norton Firewall and Antivirus and rebooted. I installed the software and came up to a window from ZASS asking if I wanted to continue on the 15-day trial or enter my key. I typed in the key from the back of the CD sleeve and hit the validate key. It came back as "Not a Valid Key"
I tried different variations of the key, all uppercase, all lowercase, no dashes, with dashes, some with 0's, some with O's, some with I's, some with 1's, nothing worked. I have sent an e-mail to ZA Retail support but wanted to try the forum.
I have DL'ed the new 7.0.462.000 and installed it. I read through the forums about the Windows Security not seeing the firewall and did the workaround with 100% fix!
Am I doing something incorrect on the license key from what anybody can see above? Do I wait for an e-mail from Retail Support, where do I go from here?
Thanks ahead for any help y'all can provide!
