You can't as McAfee is integrated into the Windows Security Center and this is by design apparently.
We have brought this up previously and have been told that it may or may not be changed at some stage in the future but is a low priority on the amendment list.
I have found through trial and error that disabling (using msconfig) the service module called "McAfee Services" prevents the start menu from being rewritten. Do you know what other services are performed by this subprogram and would be disabled if I kill it?
I would imagine it disables more than just that Start Menu item but have no idea what. In another similar thread in the Enterprise section a tech stated 'don't be surprised if you suddenly end up infected' so your guess is as good as mine on this.
I will ask for help on this.
