I've just purchased McAfee Internet Security 2013 (no disks just a Retail Card with a registration number) but Windows 8 isn't listed as one of the operating systems-my new PC has Windows 8 and includes a 3 month trial if McAfee version 11.6.
If I try to download the software (once my 3 month trial has expired at the end of March 2013) will it recognise that I'm running Windows 8 and download the correct version?
Yes it should do. Windows 8 is supported, both x86 and x64 versions.
OK, good luck.
Just got Dell with Windows8 and McAfee trial for a month. I just went ahead and renewed it anyway (2 yrs), since trial expires in 3 weeks. Do I need to download anything now? I assume I don't, since it's already in there.
If it's the same software from the same source then no you shouldn't have to do anything. Eventually the expiry date shown in the interface should update to the new one.
You're welcome. ;-)
