Reinstall McAfee Privacy Service

When I log on to my computer the sign pops up saying "reinstall McAfee privacy service". When I try to figure out what is going on and how I can fix this problem it says it cannot fix it, it freezes my computer, it stoped me from chatting with someone with McAfee when I wanted to do a live chat. What is this? How can I fix this? It is really taking a toll on my computer. Thank you

Re: Reinstall McAfee Privacy Service

Privacy Service no longer exists and hasn't for around a year now.   I suggest you uninstall whatever you have installed in the normal manner through Control Panel and then install the latest from your online account.

Alternatively contact Technical Support via the link under Useful Links at the top of this page.
