Add "Total Protection" bought from another vendor?

My Total Protection is expiring soon. I went into "My account" but I do not see where I would just add the new activation code. All I am given is the ability to "renew" not add, as I have done in the past, a new code.

Do I now have to uninstall and reinstall?

Will Windows "uninstall" do it all OR do I need an additional program from McAfee to get it clean?   

Thanks for your help

Hi @Sicnarf 

Please let us know the Retail card activation code which you brought from another vendor is for the same McAfee Total Protection or different McAfee product (eg: McAfee LiveSafe).
