McAfee seems to think I want it on my laptop, I don't. How do I prevent it reinstalling?

Jump to solution

I hate McAfee, I don't have any use for any of the scam "virus protection," provided by them or Norton. On my old PC I had this same problem with Norton installing itself after a windows update and spamming me to subscribe. How do I stop this from happening with McAfee?
