Default Norton

My parents have norton Anti-Virus on their desktop(not a free trial) and they want me to restore the comp.(to factory settings). After i "redo" the comp, how do i get Norton back on? would i just re-download? . I can't find anything useful on their site. i cant find where i can re-download a product. any help will be appreciated

Well it's one of two things:

1. It came preinstalled on the computer, in which case the backup CD provided by the PC company would have it in the restore disc

2. They bought Norton and you just need to put in the CD.

Unless you are installing XP from scratch and not using the factory specialized OS that's usually provided...

There must be either the recovery CD that has Norton intergrated or there must be a CD liying somewhere.
