$MfeDeepRem directory is eating up my drive

I am running McAfee LiveSafe.  I noticed that folders keep getting added to the c:\$MfeDeepRem\TERMINATED_SESSIONS and c:\$MfeDeepRem\USER_DATA sub folders.  These folders contain small files, but I cannot delete them.  There are thousands of them.  I am an administrator in my computer, and it won't let me delete them.  These files are taking up 50% of my drive (225 GB).  How can I get rid of these?  My subscription is about to renew, so if I can't, then I can switch to another product.  

Has anyone run into this?

The replay provided is useless.

The issue is that in the past 75 minutes, McAfee has generated 81,500 guid folders under TERMINATED_SESSIONS.

The disk is running at 100% and the computer is all but unusable.

The link describes that it is OK but clearly, it is not this is bull**bleep**.
