How to remove McAfee

Re: Load of Crap

Yes I have, and that is how I got into this mess in the first place. When it finished it's so-called uninstall it left keys in the reg that CAN-NOT be deleted

Re: Load of Crap

Support can I am sure Though I never worry about dregs that are left but some users do. I have seen manual removal by mods/support staff occurred several times

Re: Load of Crap

"I am sure Though I never worry about dregs that are left" You would be if like me can NOT install another antivirus as they all tell me that I have McAfee still on my system, and I must uninstall it before I can install their product. And seeing as I can NOT uninstall this Crap. I am stuck with a computer that is not protected. See my problem now????

Re: Load of Crap

I do know support can remove the keys manually. Sometimes as well rerunning MCPR again can help as well. Agreed I see your point but as I only use Mcafee that is why no issue for me.
