If you have a license assigned to a computer that you no longer use, and you want to deactivate and reactivate that license on your new computer:

  1. On your new computer, open a web browser and go to http://home.mcafee.com.
  2. Hover your mouse over My Account, and then click My Account from the list of options.
  3. Type your registered email address and password, and then click Log In.
  4. Select the computer you want to remove the license from.
  5. Click Deactivate.
  6. To begin the install on your new computer, click Download.
  7. Follow the instructions to download and install your McAfee software.

Are you talking about Consumer versions of McAfee?

The activation key works only once, after that you access the online account for your download and installation.

Please tell us what product this is so the thread can be moved to the correct section of this community.
