McAfee Technical Support
If I call tech support, I have to pay for it according to the site. I have read the Document ID: TS100762 "How to troubleshoot a Verify Subscription message" and followed all they don't help either. The link http://us.mcafee.com/apps/agent/tools/ts/ts_getemail_new.asp in the document goes to a blank page. Maddening. I'll try calling the tech support numbers later when I have time and see how much they want to soak me for to get their product working again. Will report back if I find a solution.
I called the tech support number, and just as I thought - I have to buy a pin number and pay for the call, which I refuse to do. So, to summarize, this product that I purchased which still has some months left in the subscription is giving me warnings that there are issues with the firewall, I can't fix it myself, the link in the document on how to fix it takes me to a blank page, I can't do the free live chat with tech support because I can't find a way to download the chat client and so I'm forced to go to the fee-based phone support, if I want the product I have already paid for to work correctly. I get how this works now, and McAfee has lost a customer. I am a customer service manager for an international company that is primarily e-commerce based, and am thankful my company's policy regarding how they treat their customer is way better than this. Sorry if I sound a mite testy, but I have been moving for the past month and my life has been in massive upheaval through the holidays, and I just want my stuff to work again the way it used to! Is that too much to ask?
Dave, Rakesh gave both numbers in case you needed them but he did say that Customer Service deal with subscription issues and their phone lines are free.
Telephone Customer Service

All that says is that long distance charges may apply in some cases.
I called the free customer support # and was told that it is a tech support issue and that they can't help me, and that I have to use the free live chat that doesn't work for me or call the pay-per call tech support line. I politely but firmly persisted and was switched to a supervisor who was able to give me a direct line to tech support and a free pin # so i don't have to pay for the call. I'll call them this evening when I get home from work.
Well I guess they know best...I live and I learn...! There's always the free Technical Support online chat http://service.mcafee.com/TechSupportHome.aspx?lc=4105&sg=TS if all else fails.
Also McAfee offers free Priority Telephone Support for the first 30 days after you activate your new product. If you recently purchased your McAfee software from mcafee.com or from a retail store, then you are eligible for this offer.
Well, I've just learned that I need to use Internet Explorer and not Google Chrome if I want to get anywhere on the McAfee site. The chat cleint and installer don't work with chrome. I switched to Explorer, uninstalled and reinstaled Security Suite, and everything works. Sometimes it just takes a while for me to catch on to the blatantly obvious!
Lesson for today: McAfee chat client and installer don't work with Google chrome - use Internet Explorer for these.
Glad you've sorted it out.
