Computer at Risk after Upgrade

My Internet Security subscription recently expired, so I purchased a retail version of Total Protection 2010.  I selected the install from web option and activated it using the key code provided on the disk.  Security Center shows that my computer is at risk, with my subscription having expired in February.  When I check my account online, it shows the old subscription as being expired but also shows the Total Protection 2010 expiring in March 2011.  It also shows that as being activated and notes the activation key code.  Any ideas on this???  Thanks.

Your mcafee subscription could provide you a wrong subscription date , even if the system clock is set incorrect. Check whether the system clock is set right (including month & year)
If yes, run the removal tool from
here and reinstall your new subscription you’re your account page in
