    open mcafee's main panel....i think it should be in the settings or in the firewall, the option to temporarily stop it......
    can't remember exactly because its been some time since i used Mcafee or any other anti viruses!!

    Open McAfee Security Centre
    Click on 'Computer & Files'
    On the right panel click on 'Configure'
    The second panel down says 'Virus protection is enabled' - change it to 'Off'

    It will then ask when you want to restart protection - either at restart, a set number or minutes or never. Pick whichever one suits your purpose.

    Find mcafee
    Click unistall

    Honestly, mcafee causes more problems than it solves.
