How to remove MaCfee trial AV security on IdeaPad or IdeaCentre


My IdeaCentre came with a preinstalled trial copy of McAfee security, but I have decided to  use Avast. About every hour, a McAfee box comes up telling me to renew, or my computer will not be protected.  Since I have another AV program install and therefore have protection, I wish to remove McAfee and stop these pop-ups.


 I tried Control Panel uninstall, but it didn't work. 


Try the McAfee Consumer Product Removal Tool from here :http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Uninstallers/McAfee-Consumer-Product-Removal-Tool.shtml


Instructions for use are located at the bottom of that webpage.
