I would strongly suggest disabling anything related to McAfee, and in fact, uninstall it entirely from your computer. Use the built in Windows Defender anti-virus, with monthly scans using malwarebytes (www.malwarebytes.com). McAfee is a generally poor product and can leave you more at more risk.

That's fine, you don't need to use it still. All that means is that McAfee paid Sky to tell you to install it.
