    McAfee desktop icon won't go away

      This is a known problem with the solution being downloading the Australian version. However, per advice given elsewhere, I need to log into my account to do that, and I don't have a standalone account with McAfee. I got the Security Center as part of my AT&T Internet subscription.


      I am running Win 7 64 bit, and the current product is McAfee Security Center build 11.0678 - several builds past the supposedly fixed 11.0654 version. How to eliminate that desktop icon once and for all? I have an uncluttered desktop and don't need McAfee popping up after every startup like a bad party guest.


      Deleting the icon, moving it into a folder, and marking it as hidden don't work on a permanent basis. I am ready, like many others, to switch to a different security suite - one that respects its customers.
