Just paid $58 for Total Protection 2012. Installed sucessfully but will not activate. Once filling out the product code and registering I get the "Activation Unsucessful" message. Any help would be appreciated

1. Did you ever have another AV installed? If so you need to have removed it via its own removal tool

2. Call customer service there maybe another reason such as proxy servers involved and they can help you.

I thought your link  http://www.mcafee.com/mtp/retailcard  will help me in solving my issue with activating my anti virus plus but to my suprise it says

You've entered an invalid registration number. Please check the registration number and try again.
