I post this here because I am never sure the proper place to put my request.  I need to be sure I remove Mcafee antivirus and activate a free antivirus option properly on my Windows 10 o.s. machine.  Thanks for replies!

The correct way to remove McAfee is through its program folder via Start > All Programs or by Programs and Features (Add/Remove Programs) in Control Panel, reboot when done, and then run the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR).Note: Sometimes the uninstall works more effectively if you first stop and disable the program's service (and associated processes in Task Manager) or perform the removal in safe mode so there are less processes which can interfere with the uninstallation.

Thank you very much for the help Mr. Q. Man.  All removed.  Going to stop wasting 20 bucks year to Mcafee.  Defender better protect me well from those nasty viruses. I have been virus free for my entire online lifetime.  Over 30 years clean and I'll be darned if I want to break my .......now.  Thanks again.
