Need help getting my mcafee back onto my new laptop!


I just got this and its windows 10. it came with mcafee pre installed and i bought the year for a deal. i was having trouble getting something up and running with it and saw a suggestion omegle to un install and re install it. i took it off, restarted my computer, and now when i try to download it again it says its not compatible with my computer. how can that be? it was on it in the first place! 😞 i even did the pre install check tool and it said i was good to go.

i hope one of you can help me
