how do i get rid of Win 7 Antivirus 2012 on my laptop? I had recently installed McAfee a couple of days ago and thought I deleted Win 7 Antivirus 2012 but I guess I didn't.. How do I get this off? Are there any free ways...?

Win 7 Antivirus 2012 is a fake antivirus program. It is actually a virus. A very nasty one. I have never been able to completely fix a machine that has it or something like it on it. A reinstalling windows is the only thing that ever totally works.

Go to Majorgeeks dot com and get the latest Fake Anti-Virus. You might also try rkill, (Rogue Killer), more is better in the case of stand alone scanner/removers. These should get you to a point where you can do a relatively safe backup then wipe and reload.

Nuke it from orbit, it's the only way to be sure.
