Question about Computers & Internet
Dear rosemarycg ,
There can be several causes to your problem.
1. Captured cookies
Every time you install an application on your computer, it is communicating with a remote center, in your case with McAfee Security Center. In order to be able to do so, it installs a small widget on your computer, to identify your settings and login information by the remote server. It is possible that somebody hacked into your computer while somehow your protection was down, and made a copy of the cookies. As a matter of fact it is possible that the intruder got acces to your registration data with Mc Afee and it is using illegaly your personal keycode.
Suggestion: - write or call McAfee and explain them all the situation and ask for a new keycode.
2. Expired licence
Usually the licence for anti-virus or other software applications, provided together with an electronic equipment, have a promo quality first of all. As a matter of fact, the duration of a licence is for a limited period of time.
Suggestion: - check if there exists any data related to licence expiration date
3. Limited number of install attempts
Some software providers are using the system of limited number of installs, especially if the software is acquired as a promo package with an IT&C equipment.
Suggestion: - check when you install the software if in the agreement is specified something about limited number of install attempts
I hope some of the info I provided may be useful to you. If you have any questions, please dont hesitate to contact me.
