Reinstall LiveSafe Requirements

Purchased Dell computer in December 2021.  Included 12 month LiveSafe subscription.  Recently the OS (Windows 11) seems to have gone insane and I will almost certainly have to do an OS reinstall that will wipe out the LiveSafe.

I had mistakenly assumed that my LiveSafe would be registered at the computer's first startup, but I checked and apparently it didn't.  I'll be taking care of that this weekend.  I did manage to find out that I have Version 16.0 R48, and the last update was 8/12/2022.

When I get that OS reinstall done, what else will I need in order to reinstall LiveSafe?

Or will simply completing the registration now be enough?

Hi @JimWilliams ,

Post OS reinstallation, there is a possibility of your programs getting wiped out of your PC. You can reinstall McAfee  by following the below article.
