Hi there, 


I'd like to safely uninstall all MCAfee products on my new laptop as I need to run another AV system supplied by my company.  Even with my administrator level access it is not allowing me to uninstall it from Program files/apps.  When I try to activate Windows firewall it says this feature is controlled by MCAfee.  I cannot find the settings to deactivate MCafee 😞  I also read that uninstalling MCAfee could lead to loss of WIFI?


Surely we should be able to choose our own AV system when purchasing an HP product?


I'd therefore really appreciate step by step instructions from HP on how to safely remove all MCAfee products and would recommend making this easier for users to do - we should have a choice 🙂


Sincere thanks!
