    McAfee attempting to inflate my CPU.


      I bought a laptop a while back, of course it had McAfee pre-installed onto it. It's been doing what its been doing best, being an annoyance but recently it's become more of one.

      Every 10 seconds or so, a non-detailed pop up that usually just says the words "Virus protection" or "Firewall" and its at this point where McAfee inflates my CPU usage to 100% in turn causing my computer to lag.

      I know why this is and it's because I didn't buy into their subscription and therefore is trying to make me believe there is a virus on my computer, and I cannot uninstall it.

      Any help would be nice.
