3-User Total Protection has Different Versions on Different Computers; Why?

Jump to solution

I purchased the 3-user McAfee Total Protection 2010 on CD and installed it on three older Dell desktop computers, all running Win XP. All had earlier versions (near the expiration date) prior to installation of 2010, and the installation process seemed to make two passes, first to uninstall the existing installation and then install 2010.  All installations were made roughly the same time - there is no reason to wait since the initial installation sets the expiration date for the other two users.  All installations seem to work ok with updates occurring frequently, but from time to time I get notices that my subscription is about to expire. I check the remaining available time, notice it is in 2011, and ignore the notice.

Initially, all three system trays contained a McAfee icon in the System Tray that was a box with rounded corners containing a red M.

I returned from a trip and my daughter told me that the icon changed in her computer (which I'll call the GX620). It now is a white M in a shield with a red background.  Clicking this icon brings up different screens, which appear to be an updated version of the screens on the other two computers.

All computers indicate I have total protection 2010, but why is the GX620 different?  All were just updated.

Thanks, Jim

All the machines will eventually upgrade to the 2010 product so don't worry, as long as their subscriptions are active of course.

The product has only just been released and from what I've heard was released to the upgrade servers and then held back for some reason, but it should resume shortly.

I just checked other posts in the General Discussion forum, and the image in http://community.mcafee.com/docs/DOC-1154, "2010 Product Release" is identical to that seen on the GX620.  Maybe I have a very early version on the other two computers..Interesting that this one was updated when the same CD was used for all three computers
