RE: how do I disable McAfee

I don't know the specifics of your situation, but:

Doubleclick on the SecurityCenter, advanced menu, configure in left pane, computers and files, disable (anti)virus protection. Possibly you need to disable the other things in this menu, like the systemguards, or maybe that's done automatically when you disable antivirus. Afterwards, turn these things on again. (I suggest you write down what you change).
