Removing McAfee popups, there must be some way to stop the messages... How???

I've recently bought a laptop.

It came with McAfee free.

I bought the laptop to help with my study. Every time I turn on my computer I get an advert or three from McAfee telling me the world is gonna frickin end and satan will eat my eyes out with a rusty fork if i don't buy their product.

I want to study. I don't want to waste my time signing up to a frickin developers website just so that i can get rid of their product.

I have deleted McAfee - ANY folder I can find with that name on it. Deleted. I want NOTHING to do with this product. I don't want you prying your self into my workflow, into my study time. I have turned off your notifications setting, yet you still give me notifications.

I have deleted everything I can find to get rid of you but you still pipe you adverts in my face - i cannot tell you how frickin annoying this is without the full arsenal of expletives that have been stockpiling in my simmering rage at you and your company.

Please. Pretty please.

Tell me how I can get rid of you forever.

Many thanks.
