Mcafee subscription for x250

Q: Mcafee subscription for x250

Hi, I've bought a new x250, I wonder if there's MCafee liscense included as part of the preinstalled softwares on the laptop, if yes, how can I get because I lost everything after upgrading to win 10. Also if it's trail (30 days) or long term subs (1 year or more)

Preferred Solution: Mcafee subscription for x250

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

Hello. I'm from Thailand. I purchase Dell Inspiron 7559-W560626TH on February. I have ever read brochure that show this product provides Windows 10 and McAfee 15 months subscription but when I check McAfee on my laptop. I find it can use only 1 month. Please tell me what should I do for can use McAfee 15 months. Thanks you for suggestion and sorry about my weak language.

A:Why I can use McAfee subscription only 1 month?

Assuming your purchase price actually included a 15-month McAfee subscription and not just a 30-day free trial (Check your invoice.), you should read this:
Some Dell customers show a 30-day subscription after purchasing a full subscription

Just need an educated opinion. My McAfee Security is due to expire in two weeks. When trying to renew, they won't accept my information, although I've checked it several times, and it is correct. I have no idea what is going on. Would it be better if I go to Staples and buy the program and install it myself, or try to somehow reach McAfee Customer Service and find out what's going on. I've spent a long time this morning trying to find out what the problem is, and I don't have much time to spare. Would certainly appreciate someone's input here.

A:McAfee is telling me my subscription has expired when it isn't...

What is the exact model?

What is telling you it's good for one year? These laptops generally come with a 30-day trial and it seems the trial period is now expired and you have to decide if you're going to purchase it or install something else.

Why is Dell bundling a 12mo McAfee Live subscription with new laptops and forcing me to pay for something I don't want? Not too happy they are charging me $50 for software I don't want, and I don't seem to have a way to deselect it.
Why is this software bundled and forced upon the user? I feel it's dishonest and underhanded to do this. I'm fine with there being a trial, but I don't plan on using it in any way, shape or form and shouldn't have to pay for it.
I've bought many Dell computers, and this is the first time I've been forced to pay for 3rd party software I don't want.

edited to clarify they are charging you for a 1yr subscription. This is above and beyond just installing the the trial software. This kind of bundling should be illegal. I wanted to buy a laptop, not *** software.

A:Why is a $50 1yr McAfee Live subscription bundled with my new laptop when I don't want it and don't want to pay for it?

Hello,
That is how OEM's cut costs for the customer. Lenovo stopped bundling PUP's about 6 months ago. I don't know about HP. You are not "forced" to keep it once you receive delivery.  Having said that, I believe that anti-virus is still included by most OEM's. Years ago we couldn't be sure customers would install an anti-virus, so it made sense. Now that Windows includes Defender and a firewall, McAfee is optional, but if not bundled, the price of your computer might be more.

Like the title says. I have McAfee running on a win8 laptop, pre-installed, and was once subscribed to service. It has been 2 months since I cancelled the subscription. I am now shopping around for a new AV program.

When opening Mcafee it states I need to renew my subscription for active service. After I close the pop notification within the program screen, it actually says im still protected for Virus protection etc.





So whats the deal? Am I protected out of Mcafee's generosity? Or am I being boldly lied to and thought to believe I have protection active? This just doesn't make sense. If the protection isn't running and mcafee is lying then that would be, at best, a disaster waiting to happen.

Hi,

I've recently installed McAfee VirusScan 10 on my Desktop, updated and configured to constantly monitor in the background. After about 3 or 4 days it asked me to verify subscription - fine, so I followed the instructions and it verified no problem.

Now, it asks me all the time to verify subscription. Sometimes it happens, sometimes it doesn't, but I would say it does this almost every 2nd or 3rd day!! This is very annoying.

Also, sometimes after I boot, the antivirus is disabled and I have to re-enable it manually.

I'm using ZoneAlarm Pro with default settings. I have hit "Allow" with every ZoneAlarm popup in reference to McAfee.

Also using Windows XP PRO, SP2.

Any ideas to turn my frown upside down. Thanks.

I just had some terrific help from TSG and cleaned up my HiJackThis log, and ugh, I just found another problem with my PC.

When I try to go to www.mcafee.com or http://us.mcafee.com/root/redirects/support.asp?affid=332-05 (this is the Mcafee 'Support' button link), I receive the IE error message that the page cannot be found.

Looking into this further, when I start up the PC, the McAfee logo color is red, the McAfee security splash appears listing the active services, and then a moment later, the McAfee start up logo color changes to black, and is disabled.

I've run McAfee Update, but I don't think it's been updating successfully because the security index indicates that its detecting an older version.

I searched the TSG forums and wasn't able to find a solution...

Some back story which may be pertinent - I had NAV installed and it got corrupted, symptoms included disabled virus scan at start up. The PC was not able to connect to the internet at all. I took the laptop to a tech shop last week, and they were not able to reinstall NAV successfully. They installed McAfee instead.

I'm running on Windows 2000 SP4, IE v6, McAfee VirusScan 2004 v8. I'm also running ZoneAlarm with the privacy option disabled, and have run the comprehensive Ad-Aware scan.

Any help would be most appreciated!

It's that time of year again when my subscription to Norton Virus Definitions runs out (October 2003)

I've always upgraded NAV before...I'm now on 2003 version. This time I don't want to upgrade to 2004 as I've read some unfavourable reviews and I'm not happy about the price of the subscription renewal rate.

So I was thinking of uninstalling the program and buying and installing another (cheaper) unregistered Norton 2003 AV to give me another 12 months worth of virus definitions.

Would there be any problems doing it this way ?
I'm not a techie so I need to keep things simple.

Hi,

I have Norton Internet Security 2006 installed on my computer (running on XP Home). I've just gotten an error message that there was an internal problem with NIS and it asked me to uninstall the software and then reinstall it. However, when I try to uninstall it, it informs me that I still have so many days on my subscription (which I want to keep) and I might lose it if I uninstall. There is a link that says 'Click here' if you want to find out how to save your subscription. I click and wait but nothing loads.

I restarted my computer and it seems to be working fine now. No error message and everything seems to be in order.

I was just wondering if anyone has come across this problem and if anyone can advise me on the best possible way to go about this. Should I uninstall?

Thanks,

OK boys can you help me out here. I've received the email today about the renewal for my subscription to Office 365. We can't afford it especially as we only really use Excel with the occasional use of Word, although I use OneNote quite a bit.

When I took it out I got a half price offer, I have Office Home and Student 2007 on this Asus Notebook. On hubby's desktop and laptop plus my desktop we have Office Home and Student 2010. We didn't uninstall any of them when we upgraded so will that mean it will revert back to those copies and are they OK on Windows 10 ?

I'm hoping that is what will happen when I go and cancel the subscription, can anyone put my mind at rest about this, thanks ?

Is anyone here already a member? The reason I ask is that I was trying to join Technet Plus (I have a 20% discount coupon) and when I sign into my Windows Live ID the page goes into error mode saying that this page can't connect with WL or words to that effect.
I already have a "Guest" account with Technet linked, so I know the ID works with the site.
Anyone know if Windows Live is having issues at the moment?

Hi! A 3 month free trial of McAfee anivirus came with my computer. It took some time before I even found it. Then I subscribed to it for a year. It expires November 27th. I guess it has been effective, because I haven't had a problem with viruses.
I just received an e-mail from Panda about a free download for Titanium or Platinum.
I guess I'm concerned about the monitoring...I know you can always scan. I'd like to know what you experienced ones would recommend.
Thanks.

A:antivirus subscription

one vote for Grisoft AVG from me. Free. Updated regularly. Czechoslavokian. Upgrade available for modest price. Several good options built in. Decent GUI. I haven't had but 1 virus in 22 months with it, and the one I got was precisely when it wasn't on.. in between a reload & while I was searchin' HJT stuff ((believe me, there are risks visiting websites whether you download or not)) The newest version is number seven, they've been in business longer than many others & apparently they've learned a lot. I'll go one more... I used to use Norton, but AVG is twice the coverage at half the cost in memory & system resource drain. Another thing is this: I judge a program partly on how well it uninstalls. Thumbs up for Anti-Virus Group, thumbs down for Symantec. Undecided on McAfee. AVG Much simpler. More effective. Period.Remember I use winXPpro, a 512MB RAM on a 1.7Mhz processor/MB... and Firefox is my basic browser now, so I don't know if my endorsement would apply so well for other OS versions or other system resource levels or other browsers. Never had a problem in IE with it either, though.

Hi Guys

I recently purchaced a Dell lap top-awesome machine and I dont want to get a virus and I am online always with a wireless network-external cable modem. It came with Norton for the first 3 months and I have 3 days left to renew it- it's 40 bucks. My question is do I need it or should I just use AVG which I use on my desktop, or/and Macafee that comes free with aol. I dont mind spending the money if its worth it-but I have a feeling its all the same-and honestly-I like AVG-its so easy and has saved me a few times. BUT This is all set up and running so well I wonder if I want to mess with it. I had Norton once and tried to get rid of it and it never really left, no matter what I tried to delete...weird.. Thanks in advance

Can anyone help?

been looking at buying a Technet subscription and not sure if this deal is any good.
There is a number of microsoft partners online offering subscriptions at really good prices, the trouble is some of these are listed as "Technet Subscription 2006" They are packaged units sent out in the post.

Now my thinking is the package they send you is the 2006 package but you would still have online access from day one for a year as if a normal M$ sign up.

Is this correct?

Some urgent help would be good as have to pay for this by morning and as i can get subscription in UK for ?171 seems like a good price.

A:Help with Technet subscription

Buy the online subscription, using the coupon for $100 off (it now changes to a 25% off, not as much of a savings, but close) and get it for the download. Don't buy packages from anyone else - buy it from M$ directly. Trust me on this - the number of OS, products, and keys you get alone are more than worth it....

Is there any way to get rid of a constant subscription notice named AZ anti-virus renewal from Computer Associates. I could not find it in add or remove programs. So I dont believe it has been down loaded to my computer. I am using windows 2000 pro. Could it be a part of my Yahoo on line protection. or just another anti-virus provider wanting me to use there program. I opened it and the web sight dose not give me any way to delete it. Thanks in advance.

A:AZ anti-virus subscription

I don't believe there is any AZ antivirus from CA. This might be malware related.

Please download and install HijackThis.

Run it and select Do a system scan and save a logfile.

The log will be saved in Notepad. Copy and paste the log in your next post.

Do not fix anything.​

Bitdefender is offering a lifetime 2013 Internet Security Software program for $75.00. Lifetime updates and upgrades!!

My first question is, is BD the ONLY one that offers lifetime subscriptions?

My second question would be, when they say lifetime, do they mean the lifetime of the PC, or when your PC finally needs to go and it's time to buy another one, will they let you put the lifetime subscription on the new PC as long as you are only maintaining one license?

If the latter is true, then this would be a no brainer for someone to download and install this AV program for $75.00, just like myself and many have done with the lifetime offers of Malwarebytes and Superantispyware!!!! We will pay more than that over a lifetime buying new upgrades and softwares at $20-$40 a pop.

However, I have a feeling that it will probably only work for the lifetime of the PC you put it on, in that case, for $75.00, I guess it depends on how long you use your PC.

I do know that the lifetime license for Malware Bytes and Superantispyware, are truly lifetime, and when you buy a new PC, you can put the subscription on the new one, as long as you don't go over the number of authorized licenses.

What say you???
