How to buy McAfee Antivirus online
Before we get started with the how-to procedure, let’s understand why we feel the need to buy not just McAfee antivirus software, but anything online. Internet is the most important, essential and moving part of our lives. Basically, we save a lot of time doing online transactions for utility bill payments, shopping and bank/credit card payments, etc. Other than the usual things, such as email, browsing, social networks, advertising and business, among other purposes.
Internet has given us the freedom anytime and anywhere. We do not have to physically show up at a shopping complex, computer repair center, computer retail store, or municipal government office to inquire about, purchase, or transact with them. We can simply do so by visiting your website. We can necessarily use that time to do multiple other tasks that demand the same attention.
Thus, you can understand how important and crucial saving time is, at least for the time-limited things in our life. You too, as a consumer, professional or entrepreneur, may have deadlines to meet, for which, of course, you must save or rather steal time from other tasks. Buying an antivirus online is one of those tasks that saves you time for other time-limited tasks and also saves money that would necessarily be spent going to a computer retail store.
You can purchase McAfee antivirus from McAfee official website or one authorized by McAfee. Whenever you decide to get McAfee protection on your computer, Google your options. There are various McAfee antivirus providers online, such as McAfee official website, antiviruscloud.net and CNET etc. Visit any website and search for your McAfee antivirus product. There will be many options such as McAfee SaaS Endpoint Protection, McAfee AntiVirus Plus, McAfee Total Protection, and McAfee Internet Security, among others.
Check out the features and system requirements of your McAfee antivirus protection if you like, and also check the price to see if it will fit in your pocket or not. When you’re done, click the buy now and fill in the required details like email address and mode of payment as well. When the transaction is complete, make a note of your order details (if any), such as number of licenses and product key, etc. In another tab of your browser, open your email account and check if you have received a download link or not.
If there’s one in your inbox, click to open the email and then click the download link. Take a printed copy of the manual and instruction set to avoid making mistakes during the installation procedure. When prompted, save the downloaded file to your computer. Thereafter, navigate to the directory where the file was saved and open it from there. You will be greeted by the McAfee antivirus setup wizard. Click on the Next and follow the rest of the instructions on the screen. Fill in the desired information such as email address, product key, etc., and then proceed to finish.
When prompted, restart your computer. When the computer has restarted, you will find a McAfee antivirus icon on your desktop. If you don’t see it on the desktop, click the Begin menu and go to Programs (Windows 7/Vista) or All the programs (Windows Xp). You will find McAfee antivirus there. Right-click the program and create a shortcut icon on the desktop and you’re done. Open the program, update it, and then start a full virus scan if you really need to scan your computer for infections.
If you purchased more than one user license for McAfee antivirus, install it on your other computer as well. Follow the same procedure and complete the installation. If you ever have a problem that you can’t fix yourself, call McAfee Online Support or McAfee Technical Support and have it fixed.
