I bought new laptop from Acer with Windows 8.1 and I was said while buying this laptop it has genuine windows and also antivirus subscription but what I'm able to see is windows activation is not permanent and also the Mc afee antivirus asks for subscription again and again saying that it has expired. Please tell me what shall I do now.
Windows Anti virus subscription problems?
There are many fake dealers that make such trouble. If the Windows isn’t activated, you should buy a Windows license key from Microsoft and buy an antivirus subscription for another year, too.
First, make sure that your Windows is activated. Go to Control Panel >> System and Security >> System. Scroll down and find out “Windows activation” section. If “Windows is activated” is present, it’s OK. But if isn’t, it won’t be available after 30 days from installation. If you wish to use Windows any longer, you have to buy a Windows license key. Buy Windows 8.1.
McAfee isn’t a good antivirus option. So, you have to choose a different one. Uninstall McAfee from your system, download and install Norton, Kaspersky, AVG, or Avira on your PC. They offer a free trial period, so while downloading, you should buy a subscription.
