I have McAfee installed and have renewed for a few years. Concidering it didn't catch the last virus I had (Which allowed me to find this great place) I don't want to renew. I am happy with MBAM and Super-antiV.

How do I get it to stop asking me if I want to renew? It seams like every hour it has a pop-up asking me if I want to renew now or later. I click later. It's worse than a virus.

How do I uninstall McAfee or not renew it?

Hello and welcome.. First I am moving this from XP to tje antivirus forum.

MBam and SUPER A are not A/V's so you will need one. You will need to remove McAfee to stop that. Then go here and try one of the free ones.
