Activation of a new computer to my circle. RRS feed

  • Question

  • I purchased a new computer, I have 3 computers using live one, I am going to uninstall from the oldest computer and need to add to my new computer.   How do I use the same code again.  Won't it  will appear as I have 4 computers?  Is there an option to purchase one more computer to the circle?

  • Hello Barb, go to your hub computer and remove the computer where you are uninstalling One Care from your One Care Circle. To install One Care on the new computer download the One Care trial - http://onecare.live.com/standard/en-us/3/default.htm To activate, open One Care, select "Subscribe" and when asked for a Live ID enter the Live ID and password associated with your One Care subscription and One Care will activate.
    There is not an option to have more than three computers in a One Care Circle. Having One Care on a fourth computer would require the purchase of an additional subscription using a different Live ID but you would then have two One Care Circles.
