How to fix the McAfee “Verify Subscription or Expired Error”

McAfee offer number of antivirus software that is available in free as well as the paid versions for a limited time period. Thus, all the McAfee antivirus subscriptions need to be renewed by the users before they get expired. Sometimes the users may face some common error or issues while using or executing the McAfee antivirus software on their device for scanning the viruses or malware. One such common run-time errors are that the McAfee antivirus subscription shows the error messages like “Verify Subscription” or “Subscription Expired” even though the subscription has been renewed by the users, recently. In the below information, I am introducing some easy procedures for resolving these run-time messages.

These subscription messages occurs on the device due to various reasons that includes the reasons like issues with internet connection, incorrect computer settings, local account issues or the issues with the information in the McAfee database. As these subscription messages are displayed by the McAfee software then, a red cross is displayed on the device along with the text messages as shown below:

“Your computer is at risk. Renew your subscription.”

Or a popup alert may also be displayed that shows the message as shown below:

“Protect what you value.”
