Internet Security shows 100's of subscriptions, and keeps saying 'you are not protected'.
I'm not sure how detailed I should be here, but I will try to be concise. I am a VERY long time customer of F-secure. I have purchased online for a very long time, each year. About a week ago, I got down to only a few days left on my subscription. I saw a forum post online that offered 'extra' subscription to 2014 (suposedly a multiple subscription was purchased, but one was left over unused). I used that key. It worked, at first. 2014 downloaded and updated. The next day, however, it said 'You are not protected'. The key didnt work anymore. I tried to update, but figured ' Oh well, it WAS too good to be true'. So, I purchased a 3 computer 1 year plan as usual. Entered the key, and all was well.... until the next day, FS said 'You are not protected'. I looked in subscriptions, and there was a list of hundreds of devices (I have some screen shots). I read a bunch here, and decided to uninstall and reinstall. That worked for a day, then the same 'you are not protected'. I think I have been scammed out of my subscription now. I suppose I got what I deserved trying to use another users extra key, instead of buying my own.. but now I've bought my own, and still can't use it. I have my online reciept from 3 days ago. Is there any way for me to dig out of this hole?
Thanks ahead of time for any consideration.
