trying to renew RRS feed

  • Question


    I see that several other people are having the same problem I am. I would really appreciate an answer that acutally solves this problem. (It says I cannot renew) I too got OneCare with the purchase of my computer a year ago, and now cannot renew. I need a phone number to call so I can discuss this and get it resolved. I do not have hours to spend just trying to renew a protection software. I want it to work. So please answer with a phone number.

    In any event, you are not explaining what the problem is when you attempt to renew.

    To renew your subscription:

    Open OneCare, click on Help/About... Note the subscription ID shown

    Open your browser and sign in at http://billing.microsoft.com with the LiveID shown as the subscription ID in OneCare.

    Select the OneCare subscription shown.

    Click "renew this service."

    You should see a page with the following (as of 2/26/08 verified with a US paid account):


    Plan Description

    To renew your subscription with a Product Key or prepaid PIN, click here.

    To renew your subscription with a credit card, direct debit, or other payment method, click Next.


    Select the option you prefer and provide the requested information. Note that renewal takes effect on the date that your current subscription expires and that it may take up to 24 hours to reflect the updated subscription status in OneCare.
