I Can Not Activate my VirusScan Plus 2009 3 users Second try has already been used

Hi

OS-XP Home SP3

Mcafee Won't let me Activate Program

This Happened last month and said you have to activate your product to be fully protected.

Had a yellow circle with a ! in the middle

I Left Click the ICON in the Corner and click Verify Subscription

Nothing Happens

I then Click update from the main interface and says you need to Activate your Product nothing again.

-A Yellow Box and then A Red Box come on the screen



I uninstalled the whole program last month and I'm on try two now and I have the same problem.

I only have one try left Being a 3 User Program and I'm not about to use that as that needs to go on my Lap Top in a few months.

It already has Mcafee installed from 2008 Running Vista

Also when I Click on my Account, I made a new one and my program is not even in there

But when I use my other email I used for my Lap Top everything is listed and says how many days I have left etc on the one installed on the Lap top.


Can someone please help me get this program working

Hi,

We are really sorry for the inconvenience and could you please let us know the following:

• How did you install the McAfee programs to the computer?
• If it is installed by using a disk – Have you completed the registration process?
• Make sure your computer’s time/date setting is correctly set.
• Try removing all the temp internet files from Internet Explorer (Open Internet Explorer> Click on Tools> Internet Options> Delete all the temporary internet files

I think I might just move on and buy something else

I have had Norton installed on this Computer for 2 years since getting it in 2004 and then tried Kasperksy and Not one problem like this.

Norton Did 2 times lock me out didn’t find a thing and Kasperkys made the computer run slower but found almost everything.

If I can find my Receipt can I go and get a Exchange and try it again as this one seems to be bad.

Or do you have a walk in Help center that they can look at my computer and program and maybe fix it.

I think I got the issue that you have on the machine.....

Now open C: drive and let me know if there is a folder named sysprep on there?

if found rename it and then update McAfee.

let me know the progress..
