McAfee Subscription: It won't let me active my Subscription

I am using a Intel Processor Core Duo 2 with 4GB of RAM. My Operating System is Windows XP: Profressional 32 bit. I have a subscription for my Dell Laptop which comes to expire October 2012 (This Year), and My computer has had a series of problems over the course. I have had to reinstall the operating system a few times, still keeping the same the computer name, or just reinstalling McAfee its self. Because I had to reinstall McAfee on the same computer over and over again, It shows up multiple times on the list. I accidentally deactivated my account, and since then, I have been able to use the Subscription that came with my Dell laptop.  My laptop is the only laptop that uses that subscription that ended October. I ran the McAfee Virtual Technician but the Virtual Technician found no errors.  It still says that the software is deactivated.  I waited day after day.  then checked for updates again but still I get the same software is deactivated message.  Can I get some Help. I don't want to have to ended up using my another subscription for my brand new desktop.
