Re: Re use Product key

When you installed it you would have created an account. If you access this account using the email and password you used you can install your mcafee software from there.

Note when you are about to uninstall Mcafee PRIORTO installing your new OS remove Mcafee this way

I say this as not removing it via windows removal ie just formating the drive and installing a new OS  will leave the licence shown as active on your account and if you only have 1 licence this might cause an issue. If you have such an issue call support and they should be able to deactivate the licence if you cannot.
