If you install McAfee Internet Security on your computer, it might add an annoying tab to Microsoft Outlook that says “McAfee Anti-Spam”. If you have no use for this feature that filters junk email messages, you can remove the tab and folder from Outlook with these steps.
- From Outlook, go to “File” > “Options“.
- Select “Add-Ins” on the left pane.
- At the bottom of the window, set the “Manage” drop-down to “COM Add-ins“, then select the “Go…” button.
- Uncheck the check box next to “McAfee Antispam” or “McAfee Addin“, then select “OK“.
The “McAfee Anti-Spam” tab is removed from Outlook.
I never installed McAfee. How did this get here?
McAfee is often bundled with other applications. It will often install during the installation of another app without you even knowing it.
