mcafee security suite reinstall


mcafee security suite reinstall

I just did a clean install on my hard drive and need to reinstall previous att/mcafee security suite. My account shows on the security page that this machine is (was) currently protected by mcafee. I have two other computers that are on my account that are active. There is one subscription remaining but don't want to use it. Just want to reinstall what was previously on this machine. This is a XP version of windows. Chatted with at&t tech and was given toll-free number for mcafee but message ask for pin number which I have no idea about. Any help will be appreciated.

Re: mcafee security suite reinstall

I did something similar, uninstall/reinstall with the 3 licenses.

What I had to do is add a 'new' computer to put my McAfee on. Go ahead and 'use' your 3rd one because the other one is inactivated at this time anyway.


I couldn't do a re-install because the laptop I was using is not mine anymore.


I would guess that the program won't re-install because it doesn't recognize that it's really the same PC/laptop.


I also had to make sure my Java was all up-to-date.


Not an expert, but I hope this helps.
