Default McAfee!!!!

The most intrusive pirates in software.

So I've had warning that my 'subscription' (actually bundled software) to McAfee will expire that have slowly ramped up in the past few weeks. It has culminated today in a a pop up with a chime that cannot be closed warning me I'm unprotected in 3 days.

It's fucking extortion. If I want the sound on my PC to stop I have to pay these cunts?

How do I delete McAfee, forever?

Expired Products
Expired products will regularly ask you to renew or upgrade. If the product is expired and you do not intend to renew it, you must uninstall the product to stop receiving the message. If uninstalling only the expired product does not stop the message, completely remove all McAfee products and then re-install the valid products.

In windows go to settings and programs and feature and uninstall a program

Install Microsoft Security Essentials
Then check your blood pressure

If it will not uninstall because of an open program open the task manager click processes and under the description menu find everything labeled McAfee and end the task.
Then try uninstall again.

You can say that again. McAfee is basically a virus itself.

Like Freudianism: the disease of which it purports to be the cure.

It's extortion, the same as demanding protection money. We'll keep bugging you till you but our product. And uninstalling needs a special download from the site: half expected them to ask for my credit card before allowing me to use the uninstaller.

And that's another thing: why does some outside program have to be so hard to get rid of when one of the most essential components is there in a folder where anyone could bin it by mistake?

Way back when it was a great software.
Not now.
As you have discovered.

After deleting the corrupt system32 folder, this would be the next step . . .
