I tried to use the Windows Add/remove Programmes feature but get the message "In order to ininstall McAfee Security Centre you need to uninstall all McAfee security services first".
The only other McAfee programme installed is Virus Scan Home Edition - so I presume that I must remove this before I can rid myself of the Security Centre.
I have tried uninstaling with Virus Scan switched off - but still no luck.
At present I have used msconfig to remove Security Centre from the start up list and its icon no longer appears in the taskbar - but the pop ups still occur.
It therefore appears that I must uninstall my McAfee programmes and reinstall a virus protection programme - but will it be McAfee next time ???? I don't think so.
