Mcafee keeps updating when computer restarts

Simply deleting the file isn’t sufficient, your OS will download it again.

Microsoft doesn’t recommend disabling automatic update, but the company has no solution for users who can’t spare the bandwidth to download the OS, but don’t want the update.

Refer to article, "Create Windows 10 recovery media for your Dell computer" for more information.

Dell updates drivers, applications and firmware to meet the demands of new software and hardware.

If I try to run a scan of the system, I get the following error message: "Error-Scan failed to start; result = -2147467259" Anyway, I found an answer for this online, and was told to do this: 1. I started uninstalling and then I started to run the MCPR tool WHILE I was uninstalling it (stupid, I know, I was distracted :/ ), then realized this and canceled the MCPR tool prematurely to let the windows uninstaller work.

Uninstall all Mc Afee programs through "Add or Remove Programs" in Windows "Control Panel". After it uninstalled, I tried to run the MCPR tool but then it said: "CLEANUP FAILED; Cleanup is already running." So then I then I try to reinstall Mc Afee but it says "you must restart your computer before installing Mc Afee products" so I restart it and now every time I try to install Mc Afee I get "you must restart your computer before installing Mc Afee products" even when I have JUST restarted.

I hope this helps you out, and have a wonderful day.

Every time I log on to the Security Center screen it says, "system not protected" as a result, I tell it to "Fix it" and it updates.
