Is it possible to disable Mcafee?

Hello there!

I must download something from the web, however, mcafee corrupts the file, mistaking on of the components with a virus. I'm pretty sure it is not a virus, and i gotta download it. Can somebody tell me how to disable the anti virus? this is being really bothersome.

You can however there is no guarantee that it wont remove it again once installed.  Check this out for guidelines on how to deal with that:

oh i see... but there is still one problem:

it only corrupts the download. Mcafee does not inform anything about it, so there is no code for me to post. Is ther still somehing tha i can do?

it feels a little powerless and kinda sad the fact i can't disable the antivirus in my own computer x.x

Well you can still use the instructions there for disabling McAfee can't you?   Isn't that helping?
