I have been having problems with my mcafee security center (anti-v, firewall) (stating my compy is not fully protected and must be FIX'd) So yesterday i uninstalled mcafee, and reinstalled it. (FIX DOESNT WORK) Now for some reason, when I opened my browser (mozilla firefox), my browser shows that my home page is www.google.com.mx GOOGLE MEXICO instead of my normal home page www.google.com. Seeing this, I immediately went to my system restore, and restored my compy to a week from yesterday 9-23. When i did this, i see the same old problem in mcafee saying that my computer is not completely protected, advising i should FIX the problem. AGAIN THIS DOES NOT WORK AND CONTINUES TO SAY THAT MY COMPUTER NEEDS TO BE FIXED. (a side note: whenever I try to reset my homepage back to www.google.com, it continues to set my home page to google mexico). So i try to uninstall and reinstall mcafee again, it uninstalls the security center, av, firewall OK, but after this, there are these UNDEFINED files that also need uninstalling...i hope you know what i mean. anyway it is stuck at this point and doesnt move any further with the uninstall with the progress bar staying midway and not moving. so i stop the uninstall process.
Now heres where it gets strange. I restart my computer. Mcafee is still on my computer. I go to my system restore again, before my system restore screen pulls up, a microsoft outlook 2002 installer box pulls up and asks me to get my cd and install microsoft outlook. Now from what ive read, there are ways to reinstall corrupt files, but unfortunately i cannot find my DELL xp pro cd to reinstall outlook. I cancel all these boxes popping up, and when i finally get to the system restore window, IT IS BLANK. I now go to add/remove programs again, just to see if i can uninstall mcafee again the microsoft outlook install boxes creeps up again, I cancel these things, and now, the mcafee box is blank as well. So obviously this has something to do with IE, and/or microsoft outlook. (from what ive read so far)
All I want to do is uninstall/reinstall mcafee, get my browser homepage set, and get my system restore window back up.
I apologise for the long post but i want to be as thorough as possible. Let me know if you need a hijack this log...
thanks for your help,
