Just wanted to give you this update before we roll into 2009….
1) If you have been using the free Norton Internet Security provided by AT&T DSL for the past year, its very likely that you have gotten an e-mail notice in the past tell you that you need to need to make some changes….
AT&T and Symantec (publisher of Norton security software) have ended their agreement to provide this software to you at no charge. AT&T will now be offering McAfee Security Center to you at no charge. It can be installed on up to 7 Windows-based computers.
There is a slight hassle involved, however. You have to go into Control Panel and remove the AT&T protection software (Norton) and then login into your AT&T DSL account to download the McAfee program. This can be done by logging into your AT&T Yahoo master account at http://att.my.yahoo.com/ and going into the Member Center — after you remove the existing Norton software.
Today – Dec 31st is the last day that your Norton software provided by AT&T will work. If you cannot make the change on your own, please contact me to set something up — I’d be happy to help you. It will take approximately 1 hour to make the needed modifications.
2) Computer manufacturers and retailers are offering some GREAT deals right now. Please shop around —- but I’ll share 2 deals that I was recently able to find.
– A 15 inch MacBook Pro (laptop) normally sold for $1999, on sale for $1499 at MacMall.com – with a $150 mail in rebate on top of the $500 off.
– A Dell Optiplex 330 desktop (business class model) with 17 in. LCD monitor and 3 year warranty for $467. Regular price: $837.
Super specials like this are not uncommon…
Happy New Year!
