When attempting to update the signaures I get the message "trial period expired please purchase"
I purchased a full copy. It has been registered both on line and by registration card, yet I still get this message. The help desk give a purpetual run-arround and is absolutly useless.
I am running this program on a very new PC company machine with Win XP home

I never go through that route to update, if you go direct to the download site here (http://download.mcafee.com/updates/4xa.asp?as=false&ref=5) and download, then just open the file it will install.

I had an OEM installation of McAfee that insisted I buy the upgrade, even though I was running a new, fully licenced copy of the latest version. So I never use the auto-update or register my copy now, and download the updates weekly.

Bookmark the site.
