I found the mcoemmgr file but it is not showing as an .exe. Got in again to try to activate But it still says to please wait while we connect to mcafee.com. Not connecting
Probably a server error that is refraining the PC not to connect to servers. While we figure this out, could you please let us know how was your Internet security 2012 installed ? through a cd/retail card or from McAfee website .
It was installed from a new product CD. Oh andd one other thing It never asked for the code from the box if that helps in any way
