I recently placed an order with Dell with Mcafee Total Protection preinstalled. I decided, however, that I do not want this on my system. Dell's policy will not let me cancel this part since the order was already placed. When the computer comes in, I want to remove the Mcafee Total protection. Do I have to activate it first before removing it? What if I don't activate it first? Do I use the standard add/remove programs or will I need to also get the Mcafee removal tool?
I realize I will loose out on the money I paid for the service, but at this point, I do not care. It was $45 but I am fine with loosing out on it.
