    Hey again, My husband brought home a computer, it a Hp that has mcafee security installed on it and I can't do anything with it because the mcafee security keeps popping up and asking for administrator password which of course I don't have is there anyway to change this or stop or disable this?:(

    What exactly are you attempting to do that forces McAfee to require the admin password?
    The settings within McAfee for the individual user are what determines the permissions that user has. Aside from getting the admin password from your husband, who most likely has an admin account on the system, have him change the settings for your user account.
