I just want to know why the money I have already paid has not gotten me the update I paid for.

Hello; So you are getting a message that you no longer have protection. This is a McAfee antivirus subscription. We are Just Answer. We do not sell subscriptions to that software. You paid Just Answer for support on the anti virus software which can be provided by McAfee. Was the $33.60 you paid us intended to pay for the McAfee software? Let me know and I will respond.

My name is David.

If your subscription is still active then it is possible that the McAfee software is simply not able to retrieve updates due to a network issue. So next I would recommend that you clear possible errors in your network devices by powering down the router/modem that provides your Internet access and unplug the power cord as well. Wait 3 minutes. Then plug in the power cord on the router/modem and power up the device. Wait for the router/modem to completely start up. Reboot your computer after the router/modem had completed start up and test to see if the issue is resolved.
Please let me know the result and if you need further assistance. Also, please provide a positive rating (3, 4, or 5 star) as that is how I receive credit for my work.
