Anti-virus expired? Replace it for free!

Some time ago I bought a new PC which came pre-installed with the usual bloatware and McAfee Anti-virus.  The subscription provided was for whole year, so I left it in place.

Yesterday I received this message from them.

Control Panel – Uninstall a Program. Remove McAfee.

Restart your PC after uninstalling.
