How To Disable McAfee Antivirus In Windows 10 for Temporary

In this tutorial, learn how to temporarily turn off McAfee Security Center on Windows 10.

McAfee is one of the best antivirus programs for protecting your sensitive data and business computers from malware and other unwanted programs or attacks. After turning the program on, it scans every file for potential threats to your computer and block files that contain malicious code.

At times, however, it can be overprotective at times and block a clean, legitimate file if it thinks it contains a virus. In situations like these, we would recommend you disable the McAfee virus protection temporarily.
