Adding a second PC to my account RRS feed

  • Question

  •  

    I seem to be having problems adding my laptop to my existing OneCare acct, I have it installed on my laptop as a trial but I want to add my already exsisting acct from my main PC, it's telling me to log in with my acct ID but to do that I need to log out of the new trial acct, where and how do I log out and if I can't should I un-install the trial acct and start again going though the set-up wizard?

    Thanks any help would be great.

  • If you used a LiveID on the first PC for the trial, then to have both PCs using the same account, you'd need to either try the tool referenced here:

     or reinstall on one of the PCs so they are both using the same LiveID.

    The tool is designed to clear the activation dialog of a LiveID, so I assume it should work for you in trial mode, too.
