  • In a retail copy of OneCare, the product key is the 25 character PIN on an orange sticker behind the CD tray inside the box.

    If you purchased online, you don't have a Product Key.

    Your subscription is associated with your LiveID - email address - used to subscribe. At the Billing site, https://billing.microsoft.com, you can see part of the PIN if you used one to activate. Any reinstalls and installs to the 2nd and 3rd PC require the use of the same LiveID to activate/subscribe. You never need to Key again except if you forget your LiveID and need to contact support. They can use the PIN/Key to find your LiveID.
