updating with retail cd-rom


I just purchased the total protection 2009 cd when I was at the store. However, I still have a few days of my old subscription left. I have heard of a few other people who installed the new version but their subscription did not change (get updated to the years time) Any recommendations? Thanks

If you plan to install fresh from a CD...

uninstall the current subscription
restart the computer..

use the new CD and when prompted to register use a new email address (not the one you used earlier)
