I'm writing this from memory. I recently extended my subscription to LiveSafe. In order to do that (for some reason), I was forced to completely uninstall the existing version and reinstall the 'new' version.
That went smoothly and I had no problems. I believe I wrote about that here as well.
Now after updates, there will be a prompt telling me I have to correct an issue. Today I was told that I had two programs running at the same time - anti virus programs, and was provided a link which brought me to McAfee's site where I'm asked to buy LiveSafe at a 50 percent discount (or something like that).
If I go to the McAfee icon in my Windows 8.1 System Tray, all is fine, everything has a green check mark.
Like I said, this is a minor issue, I'm just passing this is on.
