    Viruscan plus 2010 activation


      I bought the last edition of Mcafee Viruscan plus.

      I formatted my pc and i installed Windows 7 32 bit

      I installed Viruscan plus with online installation as the CD recomended.

      After i made a new account with the product key.

      Since now it's all ok.

      After the installation i activated the subscription (i think so).

      After 2 days a red message appeard on my desktop telling me that i must activate my account in 10 days.

      When i push Activate the screen of activation start, stay for 3 seconds and then disappear.

      When i check the home page of security center a blu link tells me i must activate account, always the same story.

      I check my subscription in mcafee.com and it result regular, active and update are current.

      What can i do????

      Thanks and sorry for my bad english (i am italian)

            I don't have any product setup voice.

            i have following voices:


            Open Security Center



            Rapid link

            Change Settings

            Verify Subscription (alredy done, i have the message: "you subscription has been verified)

            Update center

            Customer care


            I have made a new registration with this product when i installed it, but i still have the "activate your account" voice in the security center home page.

            The problem is the same of my first post, the activation application starts and after 2 seconds disappear, and doesn't complete the activation

                  That's good, we are proceeding further ,

                  Run the removal tool from http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe  and restart the computer.

                  Check whether the system clock is corect, if not set it right.

                  Reinstall  your products from your account.


                  buona fortuna
