I bought a Macfee antiplus plus 2011 and unable to activate the software.

I have exercise a MCPR.exe, and has done McPreInstall and even change syspred to syspred.old in window/window32... and reinstall Macfee several times

Still not able to activate.

I am using Window system 7 ultimate.

What can I do?
