We have had the same cable company for 30 years. It was Time Warner, Brighthouse, and maybe other names during that period. Last year it was taken over by Spectrum. I have bought Norton every year to protect our laptops.
Since changing my cell phone to Spectrum, I have been on their website quite a bit. I noticed that they offer free McAfee for up to 3 laptops/computers. That is great as my Norton is up for renewal in 14 days.
I clicked on the link to go into it, and it says that if you have used McAfee before, and this laptop came with a 30 day trial, you have to use another email address. So I tried my husband’s and that didn’t work.
Up came, that I had to get a secondary email. I tried on gmail, which I use, and it was saying about the new one being the primary one. I only want it for this one transaction. I then went to Yahoo, only to find out that I had an account, probably 20 or more years ago. So it took me a lot of verification codes to get it up, and running.
Back to the Spectrum page, and it is saying User Name or Password invalid. What a pain in the rear end.
I am taking a step back from it after all that messing around. I will most likely get onto Spectrum, and see what is now preventing me from their coverage.
The Internet is supposed to make our lives easier. I find it challenging, and frustrating, so much of the time.
