How to open McAfee control console


I am very new to McAfee.

If you could tell me how to open the Control console:

I have windows 8.0 and McAfee came pre-installed.

What do I type on the screen of the attached file StartRun.jpg ?gram


What do I type from the DOS command line ?


anything else you could tell me to start the program ?

Thanks and regards.

Re: How to open McAfee control console

It's complicated opening it that way.  In your desktop app there should be an icon over at the bottom right by the clock which when either double-clicked or right-click, select from menu, should then open.

Or if on the Modern Apps screen simply type (into thin air!) McAfee and a menu should magically appear listing the possibilities.
