Cannot install OneCare on multiple PCs RRS feed

  • Question

  • I am trying to install OneCare on multiple PCs and it's not working.  I have it intalled on 1 laptop and understand that I can have it on 3 PCs.  On a 2nd laptop, I go to the main screen and select "Add Another Computer".  I then select under #1 "Install Windows Live OneCare."  It then takes me to a screen asking me to purchase OneCare (again?) then when I select "Go", I get a screen that says, "No available plans" because I already have a plan.  Help?!
