I have installed McAfee Total Protection 2010 on my new laptop that is running Windows 7 64bit. Everytime i install the software on my laptop i am unable to activate it. When i click on the "Activate" link in the Security Center it brings up a screen saying "Preparing to Activate" but then automatically closes after couple of seconds, meaning that i am unable to enter the details needed to activate the software. I have unistalled the software using the MCPR removal tool and re-installed but still have the same problem. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
Try running the preinstall tool and then proceed with downloading and installing your software as explained in the link http://service.mcafee.com/faqdocument.aspx?id=TS100119
