I moved this to "My Account Online" sas the best spot for it.
Your best move now would be to call Customer Service, it's a free call.
They can explain it all and make adjustments if necessary.
On second thoughts: You should uninstall the OEM software and then download the other license using that "Reinstall" link.
That would reuse that one license.
But still call Customer Service if you have questions.
Peter mentioned contacting customer service would be the best way to sort everything out and we mods do not have access to any details concerning your subscription. I was just wondering how many licenses does your software on the new WIN 10 pc have available for use?

I would follow Colleague Exbrit's suggestion (Post #2), as McAfee 'Livesafe' has more features. In addition of course you can always contact 'Customer Service' should you have any questions. You may also (Right Click) on your McAfee Icon in the Lower Task Bar, and select (Verify Subscription).

Vista - McAfee Antivirus Plus - valid until November 22, 2016 (expiry of my normal subscription) 1 license from Antivirus Plus in use
New Win10 PC - McAfee LiveSafe OEM - test subscription expires October 1, 2016…with a “reinstall” link 1 license from McAfee LiveSafe in use
XP PC deactivated - but with name changed to new Win10 PC with links “reinstall” and “reactivate” 0 license being used since PC deactivated
What should I do so my subscription and protection don’t get messed up and I don't end up paying twice. Thanks for any tips.
Your normal subscription has a freed up 1 license from the de-activated XP PC. You can use this 1 license to install on the new windows 10 computer. Just remove the existing McAfee LiveSafe on your Windows 10 and Install Antivirus Plus from My Account.
