How to find activation key for PC Optimizer

Jump to solution

I have successfully downloaded PC Optimizer and paid for it. I am being asked for an Activation Key. Chat is of no use, since it starts with the instruction 'Grab the Product Card'. What Product Card?  I never saw mention of such a thing during the advertizing or installation.  It was implied that I could log in to my McAffee account and find the key, but I did log in and could not find any mention of activation keys.

Hi,

no problem and glad to see that you have the program working .

maybe the following steps can be of help;


• Login to  your McAfee account
• Go to Downloads & Devices and scroll down when you are seeing PC Optimzer

• Select PC optimizer. (code should be visible there)
• Download and install the subscription.
• In some cases, it gets activated automatically.
• If not use the code under PC optimizer subscription.

Does this help you perhaps to find ?

Hello,

maybe the following service doc can be of help for you;

McAfee KB - How to download, install, and activate McAfee PC Optimizer

look for Step 2 Download in this article

in this step look for number 5;

TIP: You can see the Activation Key below the Download button. Make a note of this code as it's needed when installing the product.

to see the above you need to be logged in to your McAfee account.

hope this helps ?

Thank you for your follow-up to my request.

PC Optimizer was downloaded for me by the tech support guy. He copied the activation key and pasted it into the box when required, but I did not have a chance to record it, as he worked quickly. Do you know how I can find the activation key for the PC Optimizer , if I need to activate it again at some future date?  Presumably it is specific for my copy of the software?

Thank you! This worked, so I now have a copy of the activation key. Under Downloads and Devices I could not find the PC optimiser info at first,
because I am a disorganized fellow and have multiple subscriptions. I will have to work out how to combine them, and to link all my McAfee protection
to all my computers and my mobile phone. Plenty of fun for the winter evenings......

Thank you, again, for helping me!

Hello and thank You!

In my case it doesn't work. Mc Afee says the activation key is to find after a click on the key-symbol after opnening PC Optimizer. There ist nothing. So I search on. (Other software-producers send an email or the starting information are to see in the bill.) Greetings from Sebastian
