    New 8.1 laptop question


    This is the machine
    Buy Toshiba Satellite C70-A-16P Laptop, Intel Pentium, 4GB RAM, 1TB, 17.3", Black online at John Lewis

    The thing that bugs me is that it comes with McAfee pre installed,
    if anyone knows the correct way to eliminate McAfee totally apart from a system install I would appreciate the advice.

    I don't have access to the machine as it is not mine but any advice is welcome.

    You should be able to uninstall all McAfee programs from the Control Panel "Add/remove pogroms"

    If not, Mcafee has an uninstaller on their site-
