How to disable all of Mcafee Total Protection while still having it downloaded

My dad is forcing me to download Mcafee onto my computer, I don't want it slowing down my computer or be using it or anything, I want it completely disabled but still downloaded to make it seem like I have it on. Is there anyway to just disable it and will disabling it be enough to stop it from slowing down my computer. Also I would like it to take up as little space, I'm wondering how to download the lowest amount of it

Hi @rekhaben92,

Greetings from McAfee.

You can install the McAfee application but some of the features like virus scan will be turned on and you will not be able to disable it. Some of the features can be disabled manually like secure VPN.
