I have Windows 7 running on my system. I had installed Mcafee Antivirus Plus 2011 on my system.
But to renew the subscription I bought the CD from source other than Mcafee and installed it after uninstalling the first one.
But now the new product is not getting activated, giving error that mcafee is unable to activate.
Thanks in advance.

I'm facing the same problem mentioned above. I paid someone to activate/install the anti virus from the CD, but am unable to activate. The subscription tab says I need to activate by 25th, which is tomorrow so I'm very worried. Have spent many hours trying to fix it but nothing works. I even tried the cmd.exe procedure but it says "c:\program" is not valid or something. Please revert ASAP and help! Have tried the tech chat thing but that didnt happen either - maybe because there is no "india" on that list!
