Re: I want to remove McAfee Safe Connect

I have this exact problem. Downloaded with no warning when I downloaded Adobe. I have tried uninstall and it's still there interrupting what I am doing. Very annoying.  Has anyone solved this issue?

Re: I want to remove McAfee Safe Connect

I finally got rid of this I think.  The quick work around is to choose "Limited Protection" when that stupid window comes up and then you can go to settings and turn off the start-up launch and prevent it from pinging your wi fi.  But I wanted it off my computer.  I made sure I was signed in with administrator rights, went to settings, Apps, i right-clicked on it from the list of programs/apps and chose uninstall.  I also went through and deleted all the files I could find as the uninstall doesn't completely clean it up.  there's still some things I can't delete because "not found", but it seems to be pretty much gone.

I wanted to purchase their virus scan software and accidentally purchased the "free trial" for this; when I realized my mistake I wanted to cancel to avoid charges at the end of the free trial.  It took me an hour on the phone (the only way to cancel is by phone) and I finally got it.

These guys suck.

Re: I want to remove McAfee Safe Connect

McAfee added two prechecked boxes in the screen you need to download Flash. I, too, am unable to uninstall it; it seems to override windows programs and go to dddb0e3... a program from Anchor Free, Inc. which apparently has a bad reputation on the net.

Someone needs to clean up this mess; I'm starting with Adobe, originator of Flash and benefactor of allowing McAffee to do this to all of us.
