    I'm planning on getting Norton Systemworks 2002 for when I upgrade to XP over Christmas. The cheapest price I can find it for is 99.00(canadian). I just did a search on ebay.ca & found several of them in Canada with a "Buy it now" logo for 19.95(US). It also says it is fully licenced & registerable. I'm fairly wet behind the ears when it comes to Ebay so...any suggestions or theories on this. Sounds too good to be true.

    Sounds like an OEM copy to me. Probably ones that people nicked. Up to you.

    Sounds like OEM, they are usually fine, no box or manual, so don't be surprised when you just receive a CD in a sleve.

    It did mention no box or manual (manual is on the disk). The seller has a good history so I think I may give it a try.

    Yes, they are OEM copies. I've purchased a number of these from EBay and have never had a problem. They are exactly the same application that you would get if you bought it from a B&M. Save the $$ and buy from EBay.
