Loading One Care on additional computer without CD disk with correct ID. RRS feed

  • Question

  • We have two purchased  CD copies of One Care, the one in my possession has used all three licenses. The other copy has a license available, but is not in my possession. Can we use the CD we have and use the available ID without that  specific CD? Or do we need that specific CD?

  • You will need to uninstall and reinstall and use a new LiveID to activate a new subscription. You can use the CD or you can download the trial from http://onecare.live.com and subscribe from within OneCare - when you reach the payment page use "Pre-paid PIN or Token" as the payment method.
