Hi,
Computer dummy here.
I'm not sure if this belongs here or on the computer sub-forum.
So i downloaded a flash player update (i think that's what it's called) and along with it came a McAfee security system.
I already have Norton which i'm quite pleased with.
Is this a problem? ... that i have Norton and now a new security system has been added?
Thank you.

Go to add/remove programs and uninstall the McAfee.

McAfee is really acting like a virus, and if it were on my system I would treat it as such.

That's what i was concerned about.
I have Windows Vista ('07) and can't find the add/remove program option.
Can you tell me how to find it?
Sorry ... like i said, i'm a computer dummy.

You can also use CCleaner. It has an uninstaller.

Just your normal bloat that software vendors include with their updates, you machine is probably full of toolbars and other garbage. In the future pay attention to the installer and uncheck the option to include such junk. Control Panel > Programs and Features, find it in the list and uninstall.
