Please download and run McAfee Virtual Technician by clicking on this link http://mvt.mcafee.com/mvt/index.asp.

Re: Facing problem to activate the Mcafee Product.

Hi Anbu,

I did use the session ID # which you posted & found that McAfee software is functioning fine. However regarding registration/activation of your McAfee subscription make sure you make Internet explorer as a default browser, i think you are using Mozilla firefox as default browser on your computer. In order to make IE as default browser navigate to Internet explorer - tools - internet options - programs & then click on Make default. After you make IE as default browser please try to register/activate your McAfee subscription & see what happens. Good luck

Anbu,

Contact mcafee chat technicians through this link : http://service.mcafee.com/LocaleSelect.aspx?lc=1033&sg=TS&pt=1&st=CHAT . They will be able to get it fixed after they diagnose the cause of the error.

Thanks,
