hi,recently [just before Christmas] we purchased a new hp lap top together with the Norton security that had a product key, that was ok until we had windows 8.1 taken off and windows 7 installed, the Norton was deleted in the switch over

We need to get the correct version that came preinstalled.
Do you recall what this was?

originally Macafee came installed temporary but I was unaware and purchased the Norton security. when we had the conversion a free anti virus was installed which expires in three days time

ok, if you purchased it recently, then you just need to re-download it again
To do this
Go to
Sign into your account
In the Install on this device window, click Agree & Download.
You can then re-download and register it again.
I can also do these steps for you, and have made a request via Additional Services. This is optional, and if you choose to do this, I can, with your permission, remote into your computer while you watch and do all these steps (and deal with any problems that arise during them) for you. Or if you do not choose to take this service, we can continue here. This is no problem at all. Just let me know please.
Let me know the results please
Thank you
