  • Go to http://onecare.live.com and download the trial of OneCare. After it is installed, open OneCare and click on the Subcribe link. Sign in with the LiveID for your subscription and it will activate the local copy.


    If you don't recall the LiveID you used for your subscription, you will need to contact support who can provide that information to you using your Key and/or contact information.


    Alternatively, sign in at http://billing.microsoft.com with email addresses that you have set up as LiveIDs and one will show your subscription listed - that would the LiveID to use to activate with.

    Did you replace your drive and install Windows again? I'm not clear on your statement about "removed some of the old one."
