Re: a failed activation in dell inspiron n5010 laptop

McAfee products fail to activate/update when a proxy server requires you to enter a user name and password for authentication. Some Proxy servers are configured to require authentication with a username and password before allowing any network traffic through. While this is a valid configuration, McAfee products are unable to authenticate to the proxy server. This causes product updates to fail. Hence, you need to disable the proxy server or choose a different network without proxy for the consumer products to work
