mcafee privacy center question

  mad1234 07:30 22 Sep 2006

i have just installed the mcafee antivirus i got with my sky broadband package & having never used mcafee before i started playing around with it.
basically what i've done is i turned the privacy center on & now when i boot up i have to turn it off every time in order to log on to my hotmail & sky mail to check for messages also it won't let me log on to this site.
is there any way to disable it permanently or set it to allow my passwords?

If you Right click click on McAfee icon in your tray you should have the option to disable it.

Uninstall it and get AVG or Avast and Zone Alarm. Much less intrusive, free and they work.

yeah Mike D been seriously been thinking about that i just decided to use the mcafee because it was free for a year.
i think that your suggestion would be easier
