When you install McAfee protection on your PC, you can get a message in Outlook that says McAfee Anti-Spam.

This message can be annoying so I’m going to show you how to remove it in a few easy steps. Remember that this anti-spam feature is used to filter out junk email from Outlook so if you disable it, you’ll receive junk emails.

If after you feel like the anti-spam feature was benefitting you, you can enable it again.
