annoying Verizon Family Protection (Mcafee) software that requires a password to remove,
which I can't figure out what it is. It is preventing me from going online.  Since changing Internet Providers,


I am not able to remove this software, it wants me to login as the Admin who installed the software,
and use the Admins password, I can't figure out what those are.

It runs in the system tray and launches at Startup.
 I tried disabling it in the Startup Menu and it doesn't go away.
I tried disabling any service that states verizon or Mcafee and it is still there.


Please help.

I wouldn't delete it, I'd certainly refund the askers points, but I'd keep the question here for future visitors as it's clear that the password has been set by Verizon and all future people will need to contact Verizon
