How to disable SecurityCenter completely?

ok, i have had problems for 2 days with this. I had a virus and it took me 1 day to be able to just open McAfee. I called ATT for help, they told me to go into safe mode and disable a few things. Now, they wanted me to reinstall McAfee, but, when i try to reinstall, it tells me that i cannot finish process untill Security Center is closed. I do not see where I can disable. When i click configure, there is no Computer and files on top left to click. No option to turn off VirusScan or anything like that. NEED HELP

Re: How to disable SecurityCenter completely?

I gave you your own thread as the thread you posted to is a year old.

If your are reinstalling because of corruption or other problems you need to completely uninstall, use the MCPR removal tool, reboot and then reinstall from the online account.
