Hi Zakker,

To resolve this, go to your account https://home.mcafee.com/Secure/MyAccount/DashBoard.aspx, log in and perform a re-install from there. The installer should remove existing versions that are installed on the machine, and replace it with an installation linked to your subscription.

Moved this to My Account Online as a better spot.   If you have any issue with licenses or lack thereof, contact Customer Service via the link under Useful Links at the top of this page, they will be glad to sort it out for you.
