Alok, you have only one license. So you need to purchase one more license and login to McAfee account by click on the below link.

Thaks Jayadeep. The reply is indeed very helpful.

Would also request your technical expertise on one more thing.

I am an existing user of Mcafee Security center. My subscription on Dell (with one license) is about to expire in two months. With input given by you, I will go ahead and renew my subscription with two licences for Dell & Sony.

The Sony Laptop is in a different city. Can you pls share the link wherein the Mcafee Security center installation file can be downloaded, so that once it is downloaded & Installed, I can get it registered too.

Thanks,

Alok.
