Can't seem to get McAfee Internet Security 2014 to install. I entered country, language but when the code was entered from the card "not valid code" (or words to that effect) came up. First time doing this. I bought it from large retail store so either I'm not "doing something", the retail didn't process it correctly or Windows 8 is being a bit of a mule !! Any ideas?
