How to register with Mcafee 12 months free internet security 2013. this is included when i buy acernotebook.


After purchasing a McAfee program online or from your local computer software retail store, the program must be registered on the official McAfee website to receive product updates.
These product updates keep your software's virus definitions current, preventing new viruses from infecting your computer.
Once your product is registered, you will receive free virus definition updates for the length of your McAfee AntiVirus subscription, which is usually one year.
To maintain computer protection, renew your subscription annually.

Visit the McAfee registration page using the link Below.
http://software.mcafee.com/support/cust_care/reg_intro.asp
Click the circle next to the option detailing how your software was acquired, and click the "Continue" button to proceed with the registration process.

Enter your full name, address, phone number and zip code in the appropriate fields.
Enter your email address, and select where you purchased the software.

Click the drop-down menu next to "Product" and select the name of your software from the menu. Enter the product identification number found on the bottom of your purchased software box, or enter the activation number sent to your email address after you purchased the software.
Click the "Submit" button to finalize the registration.
McAfee will send an email to you confirming the completion of the registration.

Something goes through my address book and sends junk mail to eeveryone in my address book and it comes up with my name and e-mail address on it


There is no easy answer for this problem. You've downloaded malware that has highjacked your email address book. Your email provider will not be able to help. The best thing you can do is close the email account and start with a new one. Make sure to save your current address book so that you can reestablish it in your new email account. You need to make sure that you have a good virus/malware program running to detect unwanted access to your computer and applications.
If you need some recommendations on virus/malware detection software, let me know.
Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks.

Mails sent do not reach their destination. It appears in the Outlook sent as sent.


To check the exact reason - we have to follow few steps one by one as follows.

Due to following reasons mails may not reach their destinations,

Other End Problems
1. Email address typed is wrong or does not exist.
2. There is problem with the email address - like inbox capacity is full, incoming mail server is down.
3. Recipient received the email not in inbox rather in bulk/junk box - so tell him/her to check junk/bulk box.
4. Your email address is blocked by them (recipients).

Your End problem
-------------------------
5. You have not clicked the option "Server Authentication" or other configuration problem you made.
6. There is virus problem in your computer creating malfunction for outgoing emails.
7. Your outgoing server problem.

So I am guiding how to check all points one by one tactfully to detect exact reason.

First verify the email address you typed - then you send email to the same email address from your different email.
Try to use same mail server (your end) for checking as some time few black listed mail servers are there.
You request the recipient to check the bulk/junk box - or send email waiting few hours.
Tell the recipient whether your email is blocked or the domain of your email address (as yahoo.com is domain of email lina@yahoo.com).

Now this is the very important point out of the all points - please consult with your mail server admin and check whether you have checked the Server Authentication Required option in mail client software like Outlook Express.
You please configure the same email in different computer (virus free) - try the same.
Wait few ours and send to other email addresses - and check.

I think you may easily rectify the problem.
Happy Computing.
I think I have been able to answer to solve the problem. Many Many thanks for using Fixya.

Junk mails sent from my account


Run a virus scan and install AVAST antivirus. Keep it running all the time. Don't open ANYTHING or follow links if you don't know the person the emails come from.

My freinds don't receive my email


It's possible that their e-mail service is automatically putting your e-mail into a "Junk Mail" folder because of your yahoo.com e-mail address. Have them check for your e-mail in this, or similarly named folder.

Another way to help ensure delivery is for them to add your e-mail address to their Address Book. Many e-mail services treat this as a "White List" meaning any e-mail received from an e-mail address found in the recipient's Address Book is a known "good" e-mail and is not spam / junk e-mail.

Finally, check to make sure you have your friends' correct email addresses.

The next time you try to send an e-mail, cc yourself using your own e-mail address. This way, you will know if your e-mail was properly sent and the problem is somewhere on the recipient's end.

Laptop using Windows XP temporally freezes only in yahoo and internet explorer


It could be very well be a virus. I would get a more well-known anti-virus software than Spyware Doctor. Typically with free versions or the cheaper ones, they don't protect nearly as well as the more expensive ones. Norton is one I recommend constantly. I love it and it protects against everything pretty much. McAfee is a really good one to.
