McAfee keeps deactivating

when i reinstalled windows 7 on my pc i had problems activating my mcafee security it went straight on to trail version.

i phoned tech support and the lady guided me to install mcafee and login during the installation. This worked but however now it keeps deactivating.

everytime i reinstall it, it works for about 5mins and then deactivates itself. when i uninstall the program however it says *Your have 356 days of antivirus left do you wish to uninstall*.
