But nope. I don't see any of those options, except the Run command line as Admin – but after successfully doing that and rebooting, I don't get the Administrator login (along with my own) like I would in Win7.
I assume those links show Windows 8.1 Pro or Enterprise
From “Add or Remove Programs” I've uninstalled McAfee from my machine's Lenovo pre-install. But there was still a McAfee item in my: Task Manager | Startup tab (now disabled) – but there are still three pesky little McAfee processes running on the process tab, and I can't kill them. I'm thinking I probably have to login as true-Admin (even though my base account is associated with Administrator [for now].)
These processes need to go bye-bye:
- McAfee Core Firewall Service
- McAfee On-Access Scanner service
- McAfee Process Validation Service
I'm going to run with Microsoft Defender and Malwarebytes.
I assume McAfee makes it hard so your kids can't just uninstall “family protections”. (just a guess)
