McAfee Freezes my Computer
Hi there, I wonder if you can help me. Once I log on to my computer McAfee comes up and freezes it. How can I disable McAfee from running? I've tried to delete it but the computer freezes immediately McAfee appears. Please can you help me? Thank you. Basil

Hi and welcome to TSG.
Check msconfig.
You will need to do so in safe mode..tap F8 as your Pc is starting up.
Start>run>type.
msconfig
Click on startup tab..untick all referencies to McAfee>save setting>restart.

McAfee may be corrupted and may need reinstalling.
Or change to.
Avg.

Avast.
