I have a similar situation however what I can't figure out is how to renew my licence using the store-bought product key. Every screen I get within the McAfee application points to renewing the Total Protection licence online.
I have Total Protection 2010 - it expires in February. I purchased Total Protection 2011 from a store. How do I enter the product key into my existing software to renew the subscription?
