A few weeks ago I purchased the windows safeguard Utility anti-virus program. I purchase the lifetime on and it did clean my computer to where I could use it again
However I lost my Nortons anti-virus program and cant get it to come up and I had purchased it also. I dont have a receipt # but I do have the serial # that they gave me, it is VF19-ZO9C-18A3-E403 and I can also give you the credit card # I used to purchase it. However now I cant even find it on my computer and it was suppose to be for lifetime of computer. Could you please let me know how to reinstall it.....Id like to have it since I bought it
Thanks Harold
