Insane McAfee behaviour-activation suddenly required


Today, after I installed CD drive firmware from my laptop`manufacturer, McAfee stopped working. I have a license on 3 years, up to 3 PCs. The account info says everything is OK, but McAfee software on my laptop requires activation, and clicking on Activate button does absolutely nothing.

Somebody wrote about this before


I likely have the similar issue. McAfee says: activation needed by 9/7/2010.

What`s worse, the McAfee continuies working (Windows security center says so) but would not let me change any settings, so I cannot use neither MVT nor the online chat application.
