Unable to activate Internet Security 2011

Jump to solution

Hello,

I am not able to activate Internet Security 2011.

I have read the discussions, tried some things but the error still occurs.

I have got Windows XP.

I downloaded McAfee Internet Security from the account website.

I have run the McPreInstall.exe but after pc restart McAfee Internet Security still cannot be activated.

I have run c:\program files\mcafee\msc\mcoemmgr.exe /regserver but no success.

What else can I do? Please help.

Thank you.

It works for me OK, do you have another browser to try perhaps?

Hi,

As per the mentioned subscription expiration date on the McAfee security center, it indicates that the installed McAfee Product is working well. But this issue has many causes, including issues with your Internet connection or computer settings.

So, kindly follow the on screen instructions and run the Subscription Repair tool through the below link:
