Summary: I also thought I got ripped off because there is only one code; but you create your user id at their site, then on each computer you log in and then you have to go into your account settings to download the software.
Pros: It offers good security and it was on sale when i bought it
Cons: about a few days later the total protection 3 pc download was available with the rebate as well. I could have just ordered that one as well if i really wanted it
Pros: price. I was shocked at how cheap it is with the download feature. mind you you'll have to wait until the invoice shows up with the download link, but that's only about half an hour. then it's a no-brainer.
