Question about Gateway Computers & Internet

1 Answer

When I bought my computer in April 2006 I paid for McAfee Internet Security 36 month subscription, even though I did not have internet. I was told that it would be activated when I had my internet. I finally got connected, but don't know how to activate the McAfee Internet Security. I get a pop-up asking if I want to register, but nothing happens. Perhaps you can e-mail and let me know what to do. Thanks.

You will need to contact McAfee support either by e-mail or online chat. I find that on-line support gets things resolved faster that a e-mail

Have whatever information about the purchase ready when you contact McAfee support.

    No, fixya is not a part of any manufactor. It's a web site to try and help people with some problem's that they are having trouble with,



    You said you bought your computer in 2006, and you bought McAfee Internet Security at the time of purchase. I figure you would have to activate it through McAfee, and they should have a record of the sale.



    A few question for you if I might. How are you connected,, how much ram do you have,, dual core or single and what windows are you running??



    I know some might disagree with me, but Norton and McAfee Security suite do slow pc's down alot if you run alot of programs or don't know how to use "msconfig" to shut useless programs from running, or don't have enought ram installed.

    I have had to clean many very slow pc's of the security programs to get them to work faster.



    Some of the best protection is free to use, and catches the same , if not more virus without using much system resources.



    Some are http://www.avast.com/eng/download-avast-...



    http://www.free-av.com/ and http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-F...



    A good spyware program is http://www.safer-networking.org/en/spybo...



    When I installed Avast in a computer I was fixing after taking out Norton, It found a virus as soon as it was installed that Norton missed.



    If you still want McAfee installed, you should contact them.



    Good Luck, need more help, just ask

Hi Donna,
If customer service was unable to help I doubt the $9.99 extension was available. McAfee has been in my experience a resource hog.
You have other options to keep your machine safe and clean.
Plus Zero dollars to fork over.
I use others but these three very good:
1. Malwarebytes:
Free Anti Malware Internet Security Software

2. SuperAntispy:
SUPERAntiSpyware Remove Malware Remove Spyware AntiMalware AntiSpyware...

Last but probably the best in first line defense:
3. Winpatrol:
WinPatrol Ruiware LLC

Winpatrol runs in the system tray and the little terrier barks whenever something tries to edit the registry. You would be surprised which websites right after you leave attempt to add their junk/spyware. This program gives you back the power to just say no! The other two I run once a month more if you like.
Just do not run two virus programs at the same time.
Your system will slow to a crawl.

Others you can try:
Eset Node32: (Free trial) probably the best out there.
Antivirus Downloads ESET Internet Security Software Downloads

AVG I have not run this in a long time.:
AVG AntiVirus FREE Free Antivirus Malware Protection

Good luck and hope this helps!

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.
