Unable to activate Antivirus plus 2013

I have purchased McAfee Antivirus Plus 2013 from in first week of October 2013.

It was packed in a genuine sealed pack.

After installation, I have tried for several times for it's activation, but in vain.

Every time I try to activate the product, the activation program haults after putting product key and then name, email etc.

Final screen never appears even after 4-5 hours.

I have 32 bit Win-7 with broadband internet connection.

Please suggest how to activate it, or mannually activate my product key from your end.

I can provide product key to you whenever asked.

Thanks and regards.

This is the community support forum, it's not McAfee's official site. You would get better help direct from McAfee so please contact them via this page -

Re: Unable to activate Antivirus plus 2013

I had the same problem after buying McAfee Antivirus for a friend. He thought I bought him a fake package and spent his money on something else. So I had a budden on my shoulders to prove that the copy was legit. I contacted McAfee via a phone call and the response was good. However I will not tell you what they told me because your case may be different. Just go to this page and get contacts. I did not buy another copy they quickly fixed the issue.
