    NAV subsciption registration warning

    NAV warns me that my subscription has expired.
    How do I disable that warning, without getting a subscription renewal?

    Long ago, there was a time when men cursed and beat on the ground with sticks. It was called witchcraft.
    Today it is called golf!

    Re: NAV subsciption registration warning

    My question in this thread was how to disable the warning without getting a subscription renewal.
    The only suggestion on topic has been to uninstall, then re-install, the product.

    Re: NAV subsciption registration warning

    I'll be curious to see whether uninstalling and reinstalling causes NAV to continue to update itself for another year. Obviously suppressing the warning and not getting pattern/signature file updates is not a solution worth having.

    "The only suggestion on topic has been to uninstall, then re-install, the product" which could be considered illegal, nufsaid.

    If you bought the product in the first place, then uninstalling and reinstalling is NOT illegal, Dave.

    Re: NAV subsciption registration warning

    A year or two ago, Symantec wised up and started keeping track of things at their end.

    In any case, the time involved to uninstall NAV and hack the registry is not justified compared with the cost of a renewal.

    I asked whether there was a means to kill the warnings, instead this thread got off topic.

    The only answers appropriate to this thread are:

    1. Yes, here's how to kill the warning.
    2. Nope, don't know of any way to do so.

    Symantec posts instructions on how to uninstall at their web site, but that does not mean that they are not keeping track at their end.

    Even if were unethical enough to try to uninstall and then re-install, it just would not be worth the time.

    It is if you are trying to extend the 1 year subscription.

    Yes, you are correct if you want to use the current AV definitions only, and do not try to by pass the renewal screen

    Annoying behavior

    My subscription ran out a few weeks ago too, so I'm getting that same message. It's really, really annoying. I will upgrade to the latest version in a couple of months. Meanwhile, every blessed day, I have to see that stupid reminder. What erks me is that it provides a dropdown so that I can tell it to remind me again in X many days. The only option is 1! While I like Symantic, I am having some issues with their business practice and am seriously considering the competition (but NOT McAfee!).

    Re: Annoying behavior

    You should be able to find a free NAV someplace just about every week.

    In my case, I have local BestBuy, CompUSA, Circuit City and Staples stores, among others.

    My NAV subscription expired on 24 Jan 2003.

    On Monday, 27 Jan 2003, I checked the web sites and found an UNADVERTISED offer at CompUSA.
    They seem to have that offer often.

    I guess the trick is to check the web sites for both advertised and unadvertised specials each Monday or Tuesday.

    I went to the local CompUSA to buy the critter.

    The offer was for an NAV 2003/NU 2002 bundle.
    $40 rebate on the bundle, good only on purchases from CompUSA.
    $20 if you are upgrading from an earlier version of NAV )actually ANY Symantec and some McAfee products).

    I do not, and will not, use NU, so I do not care that it is NU 2002, much of which does not run on Win 2000 or Win XP.
    I don't want any such programs running in the background.

    Price was $59.99, so the rebates more than covered the price.

    I sent in the rebate forms this week.

    Re: Annoying behavior

    How can it be illegal to reload something you already own? So if my computer goes down and I reload NAV, thats illegal? <img src=/S/drop.gif border=0 alt=drop width=23 height=23>
