Dear Team,

I have purchased dell inspiron laptop on November 12th 2012, and in that time I subscribed 15 months of McAfee Licence. 

When My laptop delivered to home at November 17th, I checked McAfee was activated Licence till Feb 2014(15months). 

Later My Windows 8 OS got corrupted. Now It is been repaired and re-installed windows 8 and working file.

Now I need to reactivate the McAfee Licence for remaining 14 months.

Please kindly help us.

Regards,

Nithya.

Hi Rajesh,

I have not created any McAfee account, and not given any email and password, this McAfee 15 months licence was pre installed to my laptop. When I start my laptop for first time McAfee was already activated for 15 months.

Regards,

Nithya

Hi Nithya,

Quite strange that McAfee came pre-activated on your new system, not something I've come across before.

You have a couple of options available.

  1. Try to recover your McAfee subscription: Contact McAfee Customer Service (they are the only ones with access to account information). You can do this by Instant Chat, Email or Phone. The service is FREE of charge.

  2. Install a FREE security setup: There are plenty of excellent free security tools available that are just as effective as their paid counterparts. If you decide to take this route, we can offer you advice, and help you choose the best tools to suit your needs.

Im having the same issue with my alienware desktop that arrived in October. I recently upgraded to Windows 8 and the McAfee software that came preinstalled on my machine didn't migrate with the rest of the software, however as I didn't register it (because it was already installed and activated) I now can't log in to the McAfee site to download it again.
