How do I disable this?!

My PC came already installed with McAfee, and I HATE IT!!! It brings up at least 10 popups every single day with the message that I need to buy it and that I am "unprotected". I DON'T WANT TO BUY IT! I have webroot and it works perfectly fine. It has also caused issues with other programs, such as blocking internet access to multiple programs. Why? Why is that necessary in an anti-virus? I want to know how to remove this nuisance!

Re: How do I disable this?!

It's not surprising you got popups having 2 antiviruses running and it can cause security problems.

Uninstall McAfee via Control Panel > Programs, in the normal way.

If you want to make sure it's totally gone run the MCPR cleanup tool and reboot afterwards.

Good luck.
