How can I remove Vista security from my computer?

Vista security is giving me about 5 popup’s every few minutes and it’s really annoying. It keeps insisting I have all these virus’s but it won’t do anything unless I pay and stuff like that. I have McAfee, ran it several times, and it said my computer is fine. Basically I want to get rid of Vista security or at least turn it off some how.
