WARNING: Video contains NSFW content and language.
All the hate mail must have gotten to him. John McAfee, founder of McAfee Inc., a subsidiary of Intel (NASDAQ: INTC), has released a humorous, if slightly bizarre, video titled “How to Uninstall McAfee Antivirus.” Dressed in a smoking jacket, McAfee introduces himself as the founder of the McAfee Antivirus Company and exclaims, “Although I have had nothing to do with this company for 15 years, I still get volumes of mail asking, ‘How do I uninstall this software?’ I have no idea.”
McAfee continues on humorously reading explicit comments from users looking to uninstall the antivirus software.

McAfee then focuses the camera on his assistant, who attempts to walk viewers through the process of uninstalling McAfee Antivirus. But the assistant keeps getting distracted by women, while McAfee himself snorts a “white substance” while surrounded by several women and boxes of “bath salts.” Finally, McAfee freaks out and grabs a gun -- the solution: “I know exactly what to do,” he says, and then shoots the demo laptop.
