      Angry unable to register mcafee on sky.com-help!

      Hi everyone,
      Im new here, just joined to get some help as no one else seems to be able to help me! Last year I was with O2 home broadband which included mcafee internet security suite, it worked fine and I was happy with it, now I have moved to sky(unlimited) the internet is a bit quicker but sky.com will not let me register their mcafee product I just keep getting the message 'sorry this service is currently unavailable, please try later' for the last 3 weeks, I have been with sky just over a month now and I have had to re install mcafee from the sky disc 3 times now as after 7 days I start getting error reports such as 'the signature detection file is betwen 8 and 29 days old' and 'as of june 30th 2010 this product is no longer supported', mcafee support will not help me as im not registered and after being on the phone for 45 mins 3 times sky support say they have never heard of this problem and they cannot help me! Im using windows vista and connecting with wireless from sagem router to my laptop. Looks like Im gonna have to take 1 of the free antivirus products out there instead, as the only way to register is on sky.com and this hasnt worked for me the last 3 weeks, I have tried different web browsers and even tried to register from my mothers house using windows xp on a desktop. Please, can anyone help me? thanks in advance for reading, J

      The good news is that you can use this opportunity to install a half decent antivirus programme.

      You could try, Avira, Avast, AVG ( no so good these days i've been told ) or Microsoft Security Essentials all free.

      If you want a better firewall then there is always ZoneAlarm.

      Kaspersky is free if you bank with Barclays

      I use Microsoft Security Essentials http://www.microsoft.com/security_essentials/ It's free and is a perfect integration with all editions of Windows. I can't see why you'd want to pay for something that isn't as good.
