What is the exact error you get while registering the program ?

What is the mode  McAfee purchased through , (CD/online) ?

Were you using McAfee previously ?

Hi,

Run the removal tool from http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe  and restart the computer.
Start installing the McAfee programs from the cd setup and try registering again.

(Note : if you already have a McAfee account , you need to select the "login" option and provide the credentials while registering ,  if you don’t have one , select create an account and continue registration)
