    Hi, I'm a bit confused as to why Norton is telling me I need to renew my subscription when I have 337 days remaining on my subscription service. I've looked online and still can't seem to find the problem.

    I can't possibly pay for another one as I don't have the money so if anyone could help me sort this out I'd be grateful.

    Don't pay for anti-virus... Especially not Norton, it's worse than a lot of the free ones available.

    Uninstall Norton.

    Install Microsoft Security Essentials.

    Probably trying to trick you into paying again. Norton are infamous for duping consumers with their half-baked products. As mkeyd suggested, uninstall it (Google for guides, you may need a removal tool), grab a copy of MSE, and run that instead. It's supported by Microsoft, free, and works seamlessly.
