Onecare with a different Live ID RRS feed

  • Question

  • I bought windows onecare in 2007 for my grandmother and registered under her live id (I think).  Her subscription expired last year and rather than let the service for the remaintg 2 pcs go to waste i installed it onto my pc.  THen i signed in with my live id and entered my verification key it says that the key is already in use even though her service has expired.  Can't I use the remaining subscriptions on my pc and sign in on a new account?? Please help!!!!!!!!!!!!

  • The term of the subscription is one year. You can use One Care to protect up to three computers during that year. The service expires after one year regardless of how many computers One Care was installed on so to use One Care you would have to purchase a new subscription.
