How do I completely shut down McAfee Sec Ctr 2010


New to this community.  I need to completely shut down McAfee Security Center 2010.  I like this application, but I am VERY unhappy that there is no exit or temporarily disable option.  Most other security apps have this feature.

I contacted tech support for instructions and didn't get much help.  There are times when I disconnect from the cable/modem and run various programs. 

Currently, I go into Security Center and turn off at least 10 processes and I still missed disabling the scan which started when I was in the middle of something!

I have also gone into msconfig and removed the check in startup, but I still missed parts of it.  Does anyone have advice for me?   

My OS is Win XP SP3

Thank you

Hi Janie,

Normally its not recommended to suspend/disable your security programs and if its required - at present we do not have a disable option that would turn off McAfee altogether. Rather you need to disable the individual features.
