How do I get rid of Akamai NetSession?

I just upgraded to Windows 8 (64-bit Pro), so was cheesed off to find I couldn't play DVDs in media player.  Did a search which came up with Windows Media Centre.  Looked like it was genuine Microsoft - fool!

Anyway, it plays videos, but also installed this Akamai NetSession interface.  The main issue is that it has effectively incapacitated my McAfee Security.  Real-time scanning is switched off, and if I hit "Turn On" it just turns off again a second or two later.  If I try to run a scan I just get an error message saying an unexpected error has occurred.

I did uninstall the Akamai thing via control panel, but it seems to have made no difference.  Anyone got any bright ones?  Feel rather stupid!
