Installing Mcafee after Clean Install of Vista

  andyurzzz 14:48 15 Apr 2009

I am running windows vista on a dell inspiron 1720. Unfortunately I had to clean install the system as it was no longer booting (tried last good config, safe mode etc. all stuck on same point). I had Mcafee installed through Dell and after the reinstall it has now gone. Now I am willing to ring Dell if need be, but I thought I would see if there was a simple solution?

If you still have the keycode for McAfee just install it again and add the keycode.or was it just a trial version.

Sorry I got it wrong (other halfs laptop so assumed it was dell version). It was the AOL security suite download which she pays £2.99 a month for.

No registry key given as it was a download direct from AOL and it will not let her reinstall it without paying an extra £2.99 ontop of the current £2.99

Cancel it and see what they say.Plenty of freebies about.Or plenty of free trials if she wants another Security Suite.
