I have had symantec endpoint protection on my windows home premium laptop, for at least since 2011. It was given to me when I was in the military, along with Microsoft Office deals etc. Well, never had an issue with it. But I received this email, from Broadcom. Apparently they purchased Symantec.
I actually logged in. But, it says I have no access etc. I tried to actually download newer version too, and it just wont let me. I think its because this was the militarys group buy?
What should I do? Get a new anti virus program? Or just let it ride, due to this is my last year with this laptop. Still runs perfect, Anti Virus and laptop, knock on wood.
