McAfee Total Protection 2010 won't let me activate...

McAfee is telling me i need to activate the product, so i click activate. and whenever I do, a windo pops up that says "Please wait while we connect to" and it appears to be loading something, but nothing ever happens. I've let that sit overnight and it never loads anything. I've  tried over and over again and I'm getting fed up that I bought this, installed it, but i can't use it because it won't activate.  Someone please help.

Try making Internet Explorer your default browser if not already and also advise what version of IE it is (Help-About).

If it is IE6 got to Tools/Internet Options

Under the Security tab make sure all zones are set to default, unfer the Advanced tab also defualt, click Apoply and OK.

If IE7 or 8 go to the Advanced tab and click Reset, click Apply and OK.  Close and reopen IE and go to Tools/Add-ons and re-enable the add-ons.

See if that helps.
