Hello,

I bought MCAffee 2010, this I've installed on my PC and on a other one that's linked up in my network. That was no problem.

Here comes the problem. The software of 2008 was registered on someone else's email. I bought the computers both from the same guy and the software was already on. In 2009 i bought MCAffee 2009 and installed it, this I had no problems with. But now it says that I need to activate my acount while i don't know what the account is. So please how can I fix this?

Nicolai,

Run this tool http://us.mcafee.com/apps/agent/tools/ts/ts_getemail_new.asp in the computer in which asks for activation and check whether it displays your current email address.

If your current email id is displayed  follow the below prompts;

Right click on the M icon near the clock and select product setup

Select the option login when you are prompted, enter your email id & password and continue the activation.

If you are not sure of the password you created, login here http://us.mcafee.com/root/login.asp and request for forgot password, by which you would be emailed with the password you created.

hope this help you.

Thanks,

Dinesh K
