Laptop running McAfee SecurityCenter freezes during startup. It was trying to perform an update and got to 54% complete and then it hung my laptop.
I am pretty sure that McAfee is causing the problem but I cannot get in to disable it before the laptop hangs. Is there anyway to startup Windows 10 but without McAfee
In order for this to work for you then your pc/laptop cannot have the OS running on an SSD as the pc will boot too quickly for F8 to work and you will need access to another computer.
Does a reinstall fix the issue? I assume you have not another antivirus scanner installed or if you did you used its own removal tool to remove it.
