I have Mac Os LION and have not installed antivirus stuff, but just re-installed SKYPE because the sound kept cutting out when SKYPE was on. Specifically, right in the middle of a conversation the sound icon on my computer (upper right corner on the Mac) will go dim and although the other person can hear me, I cannot hear them - and I cannot get it back. Then, with no change from me, it will spontaneously come back on. That is still not fixed, but now I cannot even connect!!! I am accustomed to a great working computer and this is making me nuts!!!
But I don't have McAfee installed in the first place. It is not on my computer to uninstall.
