    Need To Know ABout McAfee Security Center......


    Hi.
    I've just run recovery disk which comes with my dell ultrabook.
    i've recovered or roll back to win8 from win8.1, as I was suffering from terrible issues and BSOD's.

    after running recovery disk , there is fresh windows 8, without any driver and registered McAfee security center.
    I have windows.old folder with complete installation files of McAfee in it which comes with my dell.

    can I use those files from old windows folder to get original registered software back..???

    Go here and register your Dell to access all software that was originally installed on your ultrabook:

    This will also include your original McAfee software. Good luck and I hope this helps.
