    Transferring antivirusplus from desktop to new laptop

      Hi there,

      I'm new to the forum and trying to sort this problem for my grandmother!  She bought McAfee online and has it installed on her desktop PC.  We have now bought her a new laptop and want to transfer the antivirus to the laptop so she can get rid of the PC and just use the laptop.


      How can I do this given that she doesn't have an installation CD?


      Thanks in advance!

          Simply uninstall McAfee from the PC.


          Then, on the laptop, go to the account page, which should be HERE, or if you obtain it from your ISP or PC maker, their account pages, and download the software again.


          Every McAfee installation has an online account which is formed when any software is installed and activated.   The account page is the preferred place for any future download when needed.
