3 ISSUES FOR £1 TRIAL computer shopper plus 26 piece toolkit
havent seen this posted in a while and it seems like a great offer with the toolkit
Latest commentsPost comment

Yes it's easy to cancel but must be done after getting the second issue otherwise you get charge for 6months but don't worry once done they will still send out the final third issue

The tool kit never arrives. I've tried this offer a few times. I've even rung up and been told it's just been sent out, but it never, ever arrives.

I've got one of these toolkits. Nothing to write home about but it has been useful in the past. You'll have no problems cancelling subscriptions with these people (Dennis Publishing); just a quick phone call and job done. They also have this offer pretty much all the time on all of their computer magazines. I'd recommend Custom PC which is the only one that I have continued my subscription for.

Or you can buy the toolkit for £2 at Home Bargains, and not get involved with the direct debit thing.

True, but as there's a cost you have to give credit card details, which they'll charge as a subscription if you don't cancel. I was hoping someone might call and see if they'll send the free issue without payment details, as there's no reason to provide them. The card didn't mention any obligation to take out a subscription, or that you have to provide a credit card!

I'd call and claim not to have a credit card. If I wasn't already a subscriber... This is one issue only so no protracted period to have to remember to cancel.

Actually this may be the same offer online (saving the 0845 cost!):

Hmmm - interesting - if you click directly via URL from here there's an automatic "abuse of the promotion" page; however if you copy/paste to a different tab/browser it seems to be ok! So copy and paste the above into another tab!

Just received mine in the post and I can confirm it says '1 year Protection for upto 3PCs' on the case.
I can understand those who are nervous of or dislike Norton. I too was of the same opinion for years - would not touch it even if free - due to the poor resource usage and other problems I had faced. But after a few good reviews in magazines and positive comments from work colleagues went back to Norton about 18months ago - and have to say have been impressed so far.

The economics behind free AV software such as Avast, AVG, etc is clear enough but at no point are you really forced to buy it. As for substandard comment that's a little unfair I feel, I've been online since early 2000s and over last 5 years have been using nothing but free AV software and I've yet to have any issues whatsoever, more importantly it's also been hassle free to use it. Saying that in terms of protection it's also a lot to do with how well you know your way around the web, I've seen people getting viruses with all sorts of protection on their PCs, paid or free.

Even if by the sounds of it Norton has improved vastly (my biggest gripe with it wasn't actually the protection it provided but it being a system hog that was a pain to use) but I just don't see a point of changing my AV from a stage where it works just fine for free to something that I will have to pay for in future hence why my comment.

The thing is now, which mage do you go for. The computer shopper, or the pc pro? As they are both same company. If I remeber rightly, compuer shopper is a good read on some of articles they have, thou, to many bloody adverts. I say 4 fiths of magzine is adverts.

Not sure on pc pro thou. I know it's a more expensive magzine

Just checking, because things might be different here compared to Australia (bank told me they couldn't cancel direct debits once you'd authorised them, when a dodgy ISP that we left decided to keep charging).



Yea, just cancel it at your bank. Shouldn't be any problem there.

I got this maglite free with auto-express. It's tiny, not much bigger then the single AAA it uses.

Hot deal as the free DVD always has at least 1 useful program on it. Like 6 months of Norton Internet Security a couple of months ago. :thumbsup:

'if' you use internet banking then after the £1 is deducted just cancel it, no need to phone or anything

But who are the idiots? According to the Manufacturer it doesn’t support Windows 7 so do you suggest we ignore them and listen to you?

“Partition Manager 9.5 doesn’t support Windows 7. Partition Manager 10 currently provides full Windows 7 support.”

Not that it matters as Version 10 is available as a free download anyway which makes this deal redundant.

I did have norton 2009 antivirus and it was quite good, wasn't overly impress with Norton 2010 Internet Security as it did seem to slow my pc down but not as much as Kaspersky. I then used Avast and was impressed at first but then encoutered problems with it on downloads so now I am on to viper antivirus and it seems OK at the moment. I am only after a anti-virus and anti-spyware as happy with windows firewall and the one that comes with my router

I have installed MS security essentials on a few PC's and it works well but it is better when you are behind a router with a SP firewall. This looks a good deal as Norton did run quite well but could only find cheap deals on the full secuirty suite which did slow my PC down but it worked well for my mum. Heat added !!

i've been looking for a good deal for NIS as my current subscription for NIS 2009 ends soon. I think this is a great deal, and furthermore, you can also get additional 90 days free from symantec website directly:

]http//ww…832

I don't want to engage in the dispute over which product is better. In the tests and reviews I've read, Norton always came up best overall. some products performed better than Norton in some tasks, with kaspersky being usually closest, but overall norton performed best. therefore i've chosen to use it, just in case having additional software as well.
I don't want to say bad things about other programmes (except microsoft suite, which feeds a lot of info about users back to microsoft), as it is always better to have some kind of protection than nothing at all.
