McAfee wont let me activate my acount Security Centre

McAfee keeps giving me notifications telling me to activate my account or else i'm not protected.

i click activate and type in my account details and have even tried setting up a new account and then it takes me to a new screen telling me that i need to  log in using my email and password - which i do- and it then tells me that i need to do the same thing again and takes me to the exact same screen.

I just spent £50 on a new subscription but it wont let me verify it until my account is activated!

My customer support code is 9001 and i have Dell tag to mention?
