          Hi Vinod Choudhary,

          You cannot have McAfee when you use a proxy for the internet.

          To remove you're proxy settings do this:

          1.    Please  open Internet Explorer and click Tools -> Internet options.


          2.    Please  click on Connections tab.


          3.    Click LAN Settings… and a window named LAN Settings will open.


          4.    Please  uncheck all options and click on Ok.


          5.    Please  close Internet Explorer window.

            Vinod – your University’s internet connection may be an secured one that’s the reason you are unable to activate them, if you are using a laptop try to activate them by using a different internet connection.
