Our new computer came with a Norton Anti-Virus 30 day trial. Every time I would log onto the computer, the annoying (un-"x"-able) popup would come: "Do you want to activate your product now?" "Remind me later."
Well, "later" to Norton is about 5 minutes.
Finally, after weeks of this curse, I clicked, "Activate Now."
And it left me alone!! For exactly 3 days.
After that it popped up every time, "You only have 27 days remaining of your free trial. Purchase now, or remind me later?"
I thought if I had 27 more days of that mosquito I'd rather have a virus. So I uninstalled the whole thing, intending to download Avast or AVG or another freeware program... but of course I didn't.
Now? I have a malicious virus and will most likely have to reinstall Windows (losing all my files).
Suddenly that un-"x"-able box wouldn't be so annoying. Now would be a good time to remind me to activate and upgrade, Norton.
