Start->Setting->Control Panel->Add/Remove Software
and un-install McAfee software
There should be two or three McAfee related software. After the un-install the software, the popup will be gone!

By the way, it is always safer to have an active Anti Virus protection.

Try ccleaner to fix the registry. or just regedit to stop it from asking it to start.

    Or maybe try McAfee's own removal tool from their website. It seems to work really well at removing traces of McAfee software. Here is the download from the link from off McAfee's website...http://download.mcafee.com/products/lice...

You have purchased a licence, the physical cd is incidental. Contact mcafee you can probably download the software for free. Also write a letter of complaint to Harvey Norman
