You can get Norton Systemworks for $29.00 at CompUSA too. I think its
over-agressive resellers of Symantec software trying to make you believe
that this is a one time special and you can't get it anywhere else....
When if you walk into Office Depot, Staples, CompUSA and many others, they have
the same special.

Subject: RE: Spam from Symantec
Is anyone on this e-mail continually getting spam e-mails about Norton System Works
2003? I would think that this would be a scam to try and get credit card numbers etc...
If it was legitimate, I think I will switch to linux sooner than planned.
It's not from Symantec, it's from pirates selling ripped-off Symantec software at
far-below legit prices. These copies turn out to be download-only or disk-only, which
makes it even clearer that it's pirated.
