Every time I start my computer a desktop shortcut for McAfee shows up. I don't want it there. What can I do to fix this? I'm not too computer savvy and some of the other websites are way too technical for me. Thanks in advance. Marlena Linne

mlinne, several things come to mind. Probably simplest is to just hilite the shortcut and delete. Whether or not that'll do the trick sorta depends on how the shortcut originates. If it comes back on the next boot, maybe it's in the startup menu? Start>settings<control panel>startup, edit the list?
Still there? Maybe it's embedded itself as a worm/trojan? It does that. There're special removal tools around, Google?
HTH.

When your subscription runs out (or if you begin having more trouble) consider removing McAfee completely and getting something better (not Norton either).
