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...

I want to re-enter my security key no as i had to replace my laptop


If you replace your laptop, you will need to also replace the McAfee software as each computer is recognized separately with McAfee products. Go to the McAfee site, log in, and download your purchased product. Sometimes, you will also need to deactivate your Firewall before installing the new product as it will interfere with the installation. Your purchased products and keys will show up in your account with McAfee. Hope this helps.

McAfee not updating


Some files might have been corrupted somehow.

As per the error, you need to uninstall Mcafee and then reboot the computer. Then once your windows boots back, re-install Mcafee from the CD you purchased. That should solve any corruption problems.

Need help uninstalling?  Click Start -> Run, then type appwiz.cpl and press enter. You will get the Add/Remove programs. Go down and select Mcafee Total Security and click on remove and follow the simple instructions on the screen.

HTH,
Deboo

Move location of mcafee site advisor toolbar


Ok if you were like me and updated your mcafee security and it updated your siteadvisor it moved it from by your status bar to your toolbar. I uninstalled mcafee internet security, then reinstalled it using the custom setting. After you do that do not install siteadvisor. Once all that is done install mcafee siteadvisor for firefox on its own and this should solve the problem it worked for me.

Will not install


Go into search mode, type in words such as Mcafee in all files and if some thing comes up delete. This will clean out any old Mcaffe which many manufactures installed. Alos do the same with Nortons, or the word symantic. Good Luck
