FAR?

sounds like a pain.
any free ship?

Put Total Defense Premium ISS requirement in title.

Can I install this when I have another virus scan like McAfee and remove easily later? And how long is the initial subscription time that comes with the software purchase? Tempted by the free drive (most reviews attached just talk about the drive and not the software). TIA

Most Antivirus programs don't play well together. To ensure you don't mess anything up, it would probably be wise to remove McAfee first.

Or use a virtual environment a la VMware Player or virtualbox - both are free and can do this. The cleanest way to activate software you don't want to actually ever use is to do the following in VMware:
1) Create your virtual environment with the Windows OS of your choice (just install a trial version from your Windows install CD)
2) Power off your virtual environment (i.e. shut down the virtualized Windows)
3) Edit the .vmx file to read ide0:0.mode = "independent-nonpersistent"

When you boot up the virtual environment again, install and activate the software. The next time you power off and power on the virtual environment, there will be no trace of the software you installed and activated.

Thank you Bitem3 (and sleepyhobo1). Perhaps an incentive to learn one more tool (that I have not used)!

What's with the required additional purchase? Tiger doesn't say what qualifying purchase is beyond a computer or Office.

They should have added the following
"$70.00 Activation Rebate with Qualifying Buy-down of PC, Laptop,
Smartphone, Windows Office, Tech Bench Service or other qualifying
purchase on TigerDirect.com website
"
on the rebate form on the product page itself (unless I am blind and not able to see it). Oh well, I saw it before I bought.

Of course, the discussion assumes you'll actually receive the rebate. Too many requirements (activate software, hope you can cancel since they want you cc# up front) and too much money at risk, for me. Pass on this one.
