Adding PC Problem RRS feed

  • Question




    I've been trying to add my other PC to my OneCare account and it keeps saying my live ID isn't associated with a subscription, but it's the same ID I used on my other 2 PCs.  I tried the Remove Machine Tool which failed and kicked out this log:


    EXCEPTION: System.Runtime.InteropServices.COMException (0x8A120193): Exception from HRESULT: 0x8A120193
       at Microsoft.WinSS.Support.NativeMethods.winssMpcManagerRemoveMachine(Guid machineId)
       at Microsoft.WinSS.Support.MainControl.backgroundWorker_DoWork(Object sender, DoWorkEventArgs e)

  • pmellin,


    Thank you for visiting the OneCare program forums.


    Try doing the following:


    Please stop and restart the winss service.

    Start > Run > Command Prompt >  type cmd


    at the command prompt, type:

    1. net stop winss, (you should receive a message saying that OneCare has been successfully stopped)

    2. net start winss  (you should receive a message saying that OneCare has been successfully started)


    Try to remove the pc from OneCare once more. Did it remove the machine from the OneCare circle?


    Otherwise, please contact OneCare support:
