Problem on new windows 7 desktop

by twkennys-19377107577467965988671688474815 / September 9, 2010 10:23 PM PDT

It seems to only show updates for my previous desktop, a Windows XP Professional. I now get the following message when I use it on my New desktop.
Your CNET TechTracker account does not have any computers assigned to it. You must add a computer to your account in order to view scan results. To add a computer to your account, download and install CNET TechTracker on that computer.
I've downloaded and installed CNET TechTracker on my new computer, but I get the above message. I cannot find the proper way to add the new computer to my account. Could you help me with this please?

I've Solved the problem

The actual problem was that I had registered under 2 email addresses. I did not realize that. I actually quit under the email address I wished to use. When I attempted to join via my older email address, I was told that I was already a member. So, I made sure that I was on that membership, and everything now works!
