Why not ask McAfee?

It involves editing the registry - if you're not comfortable with that then leave well alone.

Start, Run, type

regedit

and click OK.

Navigate down to

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Network Associates\TVD\Shared Components\On Access Scanner\Vshield\System Scan\General

Double click bSkipSplash

Change the value to 1 click OK then X to exit the registry editor.

Hi Eric half-a-bee. Have tried that but cannot find an address for problems. They have a Tech support for Q/A b section but no email address

I might be too late here, but you dont have to touch the registry.

Open Mcafee > Updates > Configure > Advanced > Untick "Display Mcafee Splash Screen".
