McAfee anti-virus trial / new product key subscription Watch

    Hi,

    So I bought a new laptop at Christmas which came with a 30 day McAfee LiveSafe anti-virus trial. I bought a product key the other day (brand new on Ebay for £15 instead of £79.99 in PC World!) in preparation for when the trial runs out in 2 days as it's actually cheaper to do that rather than renew.

    Should I uninstall the trial and start all over again to install my one year subscription using the product key?
    On the product key card, it says go to mcafee.com/activate to put in the 25 digit code but will it let me use the same email that's been used for the trial account or can I only use that email address to renew and not 'add' a product key subscription to that account, if that makes sense?

    If anyone knows that'd be great.

    Thanks
