I've seen several references to activating McAfee on the forums, but nothing that addresses the following situation: I just got a new XPS 16 laptop. It comes with a 15 month trial version of McAfee. I can't activate McAfee. If I try to open the McAfee control panel, the logo appears for a few seconds, then disappears. If I right click on the McAfee icon in the tray, I get a "verify subscription" option. Selecting that, I get a message to reinstall. I reinstalled successfully (according to the installer report), an Activate screen flashed momentarily and vanished. Does anyone know how to get this running? PS: Using Windows 7 64x. Thanks.
