Webadvisor/ browserhost.exe file 650 GB file size

My C Drive keeps getting larger and larger. Traced it to Webadvisor/browserhost.exe, how do I erase or fix this? I have a Mcafee Internet Security 3 user account

Re: Webadvisor/ browserhost.exe file 650 GB file size

I removed Webadvisor from Chrome and Edge.  Eventually found a file in C:\ProgramData\McAfee\WebAdvisor\browserhost.exe named log_00130041003D00430059 that contained the 650 GB of data. Deleted that and renamed a blank file with that log name. Everything seems to be working again.
