i bought in jan-2013 this toshiba laptop L855-B42 with windows 8 and Mcafee internet security for which i bought license for 4 years.
in last august-2013 the hard disk went bad, losing windows 8 on harddisk hidden partion and back-up dvd of windows wont work to retrieve windows 8 on new hard disk.
the service center of toshiba replaced the harddik wih new one and put new image of windows 8 and Mcafee internet security which i had activate it yesterday for 1 month time,
stating i have to buy new licenses for this version?
how to migrate the old license of 4 years to the new version without buying extra licenses?
To resolve this, go to your account https://home.mcafee.com/Secure/MyAccount/DashBoard.aspx, log in and perform a re-install from there. The installer should remove existing versions that are installed on the machine, and replace it with an installation linked to your subscription.
Moved this to My Account Online as a better spot. If you have any issue with licenses or lack thereof, contact Customer Service via the link under Useful Links at the top of this page, they will be glad to sort it out for you.
