Recently, I was in the market for a web design program and happened to come across Avanquest's Web Easy 8 Professional. After researching it a bit, it seemed to suit my needs. It was advertised in the flyer of a local computer store. I decided to check online and found an open box version for less than half the price, so I bought it on eBay.

It arrived in perfect condition, original box, yada, yada, and it installed OK with the serial number on the back of the DVD disc envelope.

But after installing and messing around with it, I find that I just don't care for it. I have totally uninstalled it.

I thought I could find the answer to my question easily, but apparently not. Since I wiped it off my computer, can I re-sell the package on eBay? Or once a serial number is installed, is that the kiss of death as far as being able to re-sell it, even though I 'll never use it?
