Organizing the user account page, the list of supported PCs.

Hello!
I have two questions:
1. From my McAfee account page, how do I remove a sold PC from protection?
2. From the McAfee user account page, how to remove an inactive PC?
Thanks for the answers,
Darius

Thanks for the tips.
I used them before but it was not effective.
The My Account interface does not provide an option to remove protection for devices. However, removing protection for devices from McAfee Total Protection in Windows does not work - maybe this option will take some time to work?
