Solved McAfee has shown up on it's own? How do I get rid of it?


It came bundled with Adobe Acrobat reader in my case, I had to remove the check mark before downloading the Acrobat reader

I've gotten new computers since Win11 came out and the OEMs have included McAfee that could be activated, I uninstalled it. But there was another feature about Web Security that didn't get removed, used [carefully] a Registry cleaner to get that out.
I had that also on my computer. I uninstalled McAfee but the other program (Web Security?) was still there. I almost gave up but finally found it in the installed software way down on the list. When I uninstalled that McAfee was totally gone.
