    Hello, I recently bought a NOD32 OEM CD from newegg.com
    It installed fine, but when I tried to activate my product with the serial number on the back I got this message:
    There was an error registering your serial number. Please contact support.

    Can anyone help me? This is my first time installing, so it's not like the serial number has been used before.

    If I need to post my serial number I will, but I would prefer to keep it private.

    Have you visited the Activate ESET Software link and filled out the info required. They will send you a user name and password.

    What is the point of CD registration?

    How could I have an activation error if I haven't tried to activate..
    Anyways, I HAVE tried I HAVE filled out all the information correctly, and I get the error listed above. Please make note of the fact that the error is neither a "this serial number is already in use" or a "this serial number is not valid"

    Good idea!
    Bad news is you need to have a username to use customer support, and seeing as my problem is getting a username, I don't think that following that link would be much help

    One could assume like I did that your use of the activation word could have meant inputing your info in the program. With the lack of info provided one can only attempt to assist by guessing what a poster is attempting to say sometimes. Anyway, perhaps your issue is best handled by Eset support and wish you well :cautious:

    Hello,

    If you call ESET's customer care department toll-free at +1 (866) 343-3738 they should be able to help you register your copy of the software.

    Regards,
