Mcafee internet security 2011 activation problems


recently i purchased the MIS 2011.(3 lic)

i installed it on my girlfriends laptop and the activation was ok.

i have spent hours on my laptop trying to activate the new subscribtion (i already had a valid one but it untl may) but everytime i get the same error:

email or password incorrect.

i have tried resetting the password few times - no luck.

i have been using mcafee for a few years and each year it gets more and more cumbersome.

now i can´t even use the product i have purchased, after wasting hours of my personal time on it? what a shame.

i am kindly asking the admins or someone to activate my accout. i will provide all of the information needed.

thank you.
