    McAfee protection



    My question is; do I need McAfee to protect my computer or can Windows Defender handle it? If so how do I shut McAfee down?​

    After uninstalling McAfee, McAfee Service Controller and McAfee Validation Trust Protection Services are still running in 'Services'

    Hello Sumit,

    Thanks a lot for the response, and YES, the McAfee Removal Tool (MCPR.exe) worked!

    In fact, McAfee provided me another tool - MFERemoval100.exe and this one requires several steps with switches for every component. I didn't have to do it with the one you provided.

    I removed other McAfee registry entries manually after this step. Checked, all good!

    Wish you great days ahead!

    D-Link's McAfee-Powered AC2600 Router Automatically Protects Connected Devices

    D-Link and McAfee today announced the D-Link AC2600 Wi-Fi Router Powered by McAfee (DIR-2680), an all-in-one solution that automatically increases security for devices on the home network and delivers on both companies' vision to address the pressing need for online security as people's lives become increasingly connected.

    The number of connected devices in the home has skyrocketed - from tablets and gaming consoles, to IP surveillance cameras, smart door locks, and more. By 2020, Gartner estimates there will be 20 billion connected things, and their role and influence is set to dramatically increase over the next 10 years1.

The new D-Link AC2600 Wi-Fi Router Powered by McAfee immediately and automatically helps secure all connected devices at the network level in a home, including non-display IoT devices, providing an additional layer of protection from potential hackers and for members of the home using devices and accessing online content.
