activation problem! emergency!


I bought a McAfee Internet Security 2011 for 3 PCs this year. I have successfully installed the first one on my laptop. Now, I want to install the second one on my desktop but I can't remember which email address I used. How do I fix this problem? Mcafee is so difficult to use. In norton, I could easily fix this problem by just calling them but mcafee only uses the email address for activation. Please help otherwise my money will be wasted.
