As a computer science student, and a member of society with some form of
social contract, I can't let you install "MY" copy of Norton Anti Virus to
your system, but I will help "as best I can" any individual who purchases
their own copy of which ever anti virus program they wish install said
software onto their system and show them how to make it work. (pizza and
beer accepted, not required).
p.s. course if any one knows of a "quote" money making operation who needs
assistance, please don't hesitate to tell them you know someone who charges
some completely unacceptable per hour price for fixing systems.
