Reinstalling mcafee

I had a subscription of mcafee, when I bought my new lappy. But somehow I had to reset it.

And now mcafee has been erased in my lappy and already there is a subscription done for it, the more worst thing is that I have misplaced the subscription code.

Is there any by which I can reinstall mcafee in my lappy.

Re: Reinstalling mcafee

I had same problem of not being able to reinstall program. Spent hours on the phone with a tech and still could not fix. Said it was my internet connection. This has never happened when downloading any program. Googled my problem and received tons of responses saying McAfee is not compatible with Windows 10. I paid for this program and have several months to go but I am unable to use it. Has anyone heard of this?

Re: Reinstalling mcafee

Well have 6 PCs all with Mcafee and windows 10 so not correct. Other mods also have such.  Best to reinstall following this set of steps.

How to prepare your PC for a Mcafee install

call support if initial support fails ask for an escalation call back
