Re: Activation of McAfee Security Center

Ask the university IT department for advice on this.

This fix may help (it refers to updates but the fix may help this case too):

If not I suggest you contact Technical Support Chat, it's free and available via "McAfee Support" at top of this page then click Home and Home Office.

Hi sourabh0612,

  •                           If you are using IE 6 you can run IERegFix.bat I've attached the  file(to find the version of Internet Explorer , open IE click on Help and then About Internet Explorer )
  •                           If you are using IE 7 or 8 reset IE and then try to register mcafee (To reset IE .open IE click on  tools -Internet options -Advance- Reset (For IE8) Reset Internet explorer settings (For IE7))
  •                          note:- If you have more than one user for this computer Login as Administrator to register McAfee , Try to use the User name(Email Address) and password in Lower Case
