After talking with Customer Support, we were told that after completing this installation, our subscription would automatically renew after the expiration date. So I guess we'll find out on 9/30 if this really has been renewed. Our expiration date on the Security Center still indicates expiring on 9/29/2008.
It would have been really helpful if there would have been some type of notification provided that indicates our subscription has been renewed for a year. Instead we have wasted many many hours of our time, other customer support people, and the help of others on this forum.
The Customer Support person I just talked with said they have been through this before -- however, none of the Customer Support people (5 or 6 of them) I talked with Thursday night seemed to know anything about this automatic renewal after installation. Unbelievable!
Thanks everyone for help.
