I'm trying to get set up so I can buy/mine monero, which according to everything I've read should be possible with the laptop I have. But my anti-virus software (currently McAfee) keeps stopping the GUI wallet from connecting.
I've tried every set of instructions I can find on how to set up a wallet for Monero, but I can't get any of them to work. I don't know very much about cryptocurrency, but I swear I'm not retarded in general.
Can someone just explain to me how to get started with Monero like I'm a toddler? Explain every single step I need to do, in English, and don't skip anything. I am willing to switch anti-virus software or use a different wallet if I have to, but I don't want to buy something else if that isn't going to fix the problem. I just want a setup that will work and not be so damn complicated.
