Still Facing Issues at

Sometimes, there is a virus in the system or there are security conflicts issues which it makes it difficult for a normal user to redeem, download and install a McAfee card. To avoid such issues, try these tips before you activate McAfee:

  • Install the latest updates of your Operating System.
  • Check that your system meets the minimum system requirements for installing and activate McAfee
  • Remove any conflicting programs such as security products of other brands.
  • Remove any junk files that may be stored in your system's temporary folders.
  • Make sure you have an active and valid subscription of the McAfee product.

At times, an error message pops up that states that your McAfee installation or configuration files are corrupt. In such cases, you will first have to use the McAfee Consumer product Removal (MCPR) tool to completely remove the program from your system and then, re-install it again.

To use the MCPR tool, visit and log in to your account. Then, select the computer or device from where you want to uninstall or remove the McAfee product.

The other common problems that crop up while you attempt McAfee installation or McAfee retail card activation are that you are told that McAfee product key is invalid or the page you are looking for does not exist. In such a case, look at the retail card carefully once again and enter the correct information.

If a virus or other malware is presenting obstacles, you should contact McAfee installation experts. They can use remote diagnostic tools to determine what is infecting your system or if there are any updates that need to be done, and do it for you. They can use removal tools to get rid of the virus, install updates for you, and make sure that your problem gets fixed.
