McAfee Question - ex-Mac user

Hi! I just switched from Mac to Lenovo/Windows, and I have a question. This McAfee anti-virus thing keeps popping up, telling me my free trial is running out. Do I HAVE to have this software? Do I need to pay for it? If not, can I delete this program off my computer?

I don't want my PC to get all buggy like they did in the old days - part of why I switched to Mac. What do you think?

Hi @tranobago ,

Greetings from McAfee.

You have to have a paid subscription if the trial subscription runs out. If you want to uninstall the program follow the steps mentioned in the knowledge article by clicking on the below link.
