I am new to McAfee's Total Protection and this forum, and a search could not find an answer to this really elementary question. I see no way to temporarily shut down all of McAfee while installing other software, which most software requires. I was forced to try to identify all of the processes in Windows Task Manager (running XP). I just moved from ZoneAlarm, and there it was easy, as it was an open by right clicking the icon in the tray.
My attempt to close the processes did not work, as the software I installed is not working.
