Hello,

maybe the following steps can be of help;


• Login to your McAfee account
• Go to Downloads & Devices and scroll down when you are seeing PC Optimzer

• Select PC optimizer. (code should be visible there)
• Download and install the subscription.
• In some cases, it gets activated automatically.
• If not use the code under PC optimizer subscription.

Does this help you perhaps to find ?

Re: Activiation key

I purchased PC Optimiser & have downloaded but cant use as it asks for an Activation Code.

When I log into my McAfee account, the PC Optimiser is not there (but is on my desktop).

How the heck do I get PC Optimiser to work?

I have tried contacting McAfee Support but am getting nowhere.

Most frustrating - can anyone help please!

Sorry, does not help as I can't see PC Optimiser when I log into my McAfee account.

I have purchased PC Optimiser,  have a confirmation email, have downloaded successfully & installed & tried to run, but it asks for an Activation code which I can't find.

Very frustrating. No idea how to resolve as cannot get through to anyone who can help & the technical support emails just say respond in 48 hours which I do, but I don't get any answers.

Can anyone help me please!

Hello @Bevotron 

 when you are logged on into your McAfee account you have to click on

Downloads and devices.

overthere you can scroll down and should see PC Optimizer also with activation code visible in that section.

the following article can be of help pehaps from McAfee for PC Optimizer;

https://www.mcafee.com/support/?locale=en-US&articleId=TS103219&page=shell&shell=article-view

below of page you can change language when necessary and if available for your region.

if this can not be of help i suggest to contact live support during working days and office hours.

I have paid for my subscription but when I go to my account, I go to Downloads and Devices, I can't see PC Optimzer.

I am getting so annoyed with this as I purchased my renewal on 28/11/23 and my subscription has run out but I can't find out how to find my code.

I have tried so many things but losign the will to live as I can't see how to update my renewal and I am getting emails daily saying that my activation needs renewed,

Can anyone offer any help with this?

hello @DougyJ 

reading your posting you are talking about renewal of subscription.

if you are talking about Livesafe or Totalprotection this does not include PC optimizer.

PC optimizer is a seperate program at additional cost to buy.

could this be the reason that you don't see it currently in your Mcafee account perhaps ?

greetings
