Internet Security 2012 re-install


I've tried searching the forum but can't find the exact answer I'm looking for. So, I apologize, in advance for being repetitive.


I have three computers. Each computer has Internet Security 2012 installed. If I uninstall the program from one computer (because I need to replace the hard disk), will this free up one license? Also, if I change the computer name, will I still be able to register the program on the computer (with the new hard disk)?


Thanks for your time.

    For first question - yes. For second - I don't know what are you asking

    Hi Paola,

    Yes, uninstalling the program from system will free up your license.

    Yes, you would be able to install to new computer with your existing license.

    Note: Don't get surprise if you see the new installation upgraded to 2013 version.


    Best Regards,

    Thank you for the replies.


    With regard to the second question, I'd like to know if the registration also ties in the computer name. For example:


    I have three computers named Alpha1, Alpha2, and Alpha3. If I change Alpha3's computer name to Beta1, will I still be able to register the program? That is, does computer name matter when registering the program?


    Thanks for your time.
