    your best bet is to contact mcafee via the mcafee virtual technician. to uninstall the program completely go to the following web site first (cnet) type in revo uninstaller. download this software and install it onto your pc. restart your pc even it it does not ask you to. when the pc has fully restarted, open revo uninstaller and click on uninstall in the menu. find the mcafee software, click on it and follow the instructions. when mcafees uninstaller finishes revo will go back in and find all the left over registry items and leftover files(you will be amazed at what it finds) delete all these files.then finish. restart your pc again and try reinstalling mcafee again. (tip) use revo to uninstall all your programs from now on as it cleans your registry and junk files that are usually left over by the normal uninstall.) i hope this works. let me know.

I auto renewed my subscription and my webroot keeps saying 0 days of protection left. When will it update on my PC?

Assuming you paid the renewal fee online and you verified your payment was recived the software should update rather quickly. Try restarting the computer and see if it shows the proper subscription information. If this does not work, give it a few hours and try again. Contact the company and insure they have the payment reflected. If you received email confirmation of payment, that email usually will contain contact information for technical support or customer service issues

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.
