I want to re-enter my security key no as i had to replace my laptop

If you replace your laptop, you will need to also replace the McAfee software as each computer is recognized separately with McAfee products. Go to the McAfee site, log in, and download your purchased product. Sometimes, you will also need to deactivate your Firewall before installing the new product as it will interfere with the installation. Your purchased products and keys will show up in your account with McAfee. Hope this helps.

Internet security barrier message reading fatal error

As a general rule, you are only supposed to have one active Anti-virus/security suite and one active firewall. Otherwise the programs are prone to interference and your security is compromised.
I recommend you make some choices, limit it to that, then slowly learn the individual characteristics of the programs in use and see if there are places where non-interfering supplements may be installed to beef up the system, or close any gaps. Explore the mac os x security forums online and heed the advice of expert users.

McAfee not updating

Some files might have been corrupted somehow.

As per the error, you need to uninstall Mcafee and then reboot the computer. Then once your windows boots back, re-install Mcafee from the CD you purchased. That should solve any corruption problems.

Need help uninstalling?  Click Start -> Run, then type appwiz.cpl and press enter. You will get the Add/Remove programs. Go down and select Mcafee Total Security and click on remove and follow the simple instructions on the screen.
