My friend is going to drop off a new laptop for me to prepare for Christmas day (for his 10 year old daughter). First I will try to uninstall McAfee security. I gather I will need to download the uninstaller from McAfee, but I don't expect it will be that simple. Any previous experience, please?

After uninstalling through add/remove programmes it might be advisable to run MCPR.exe McAfee Consumer Products Removal Tool...document ID:TS100507 READ article TS101107 good luck

Thanks all, no doubt others will find this useful over Christmas.

It is sad that manufacturers and others should inflict such pernicious and unwanted software on their customers. I look forward to someone saying 'Buy this! No unwanted or trial programs!'

It may also be worth running PC Decrapifier

Thanks again, McAfee now gone.

Another 'free trial' popped up as soon as I put a disc in the drive - Roxio Creator. That has now bit the dust also.

Glad that you are sorted,the last thing you want on Christmas day is a problem with the shiny new laptop. We once bought my daughter a guitar for Christmas, and my father in law wanted a try. He promptly broke a string DISASTER!
