ok, thanks for clearing my doubts.
however, when i installed mcafee on my pc, i already activated it. (I hope i did that when i entered my product key and also my details for mcafee.com registration.)
now, i did try to activate again, and entered my key and all, but then at 'step 2' it told me to login and not register which means that i have already been registered, right? (hopefully, activated also?) also, a note above told me to login every time i install on a new computer, which is certainly not what i am aiming to achieve over here.
I can also access my account at mcafee online.
I do not want to use two 'users' for this computer since i have 2 other computers at home which i want to install this on.
Also, may i please know how i may check how many users i have left?
And please may i know what you define by the correct time? Does it have to be GMT or will local time (mine is GMT + 5:30) also suffice?
