Steps to Temporarily Disable McAfee Virus Protection

McAfee Virus Protection is an antivirus program created and maintained by McAfee Inc.  McAfee markets Anti-virus to home and home-office users. McAfee AntiVirus includes virus protection and more, with a few added utilities that improve usability and effectiveness. McAfee Anti-Virus software protects your computer from malicious software that attempts to install itself without your knowledge(see:McAfee Anti-Virus: How to Download and Install). Unfortunately, it can get in the way of legitimate programs you are trying to install, so you may need to temporarily disable it from time to time.
