Dual Boot and Licence

Questions regarding McAfee AntiVirus Plus:

I have two partitions (dual boot) on my pc and want to know, if I can protect the ONE physical machine with ONE license?

Advanced similar questions. What happens once is use a virtual machine (i.e. virtualbox) on the same physical machine.

What I learned is, that the computer name of the PC (operating system) will be displayed in the license overview within my personal account on Mcafee. I used different computer names for my dual boot systems, which maybe the reason for that.

I need any feedback/help there. The tec guy of McAfee couldn’t help me there so I hope the community etc. can support here

Thanks for any feedback

Re: Dual Boot and Licence

I think each installation is regarded as one license but Tech Support is not the right place to ask, you need Customer Service for that.

I moved this to My Account Online for better attention.

I multi-boot Vista, 7, 8 and even an XP VM and each one shows as a separate license.
