Before uninstalling SecurityCenter, you must uninstall VirusScan, Personal Firewall, Privacy Service, and SpamKiller.

If you are still having difficulties removing the SC try these steps:

GO TO c:\program files\mcafee.com\agent\app and remove all files in this folder.

Return to "Add and Remove Programs" in the Windows Control Panel, highlight McAfee Security Center and click on remove.

Close all windows and restart the computer. Insert the CD and reinstall the McAfee security center, if necessary.

If this does not work, run "services.msc" and set properties on all McAfee services to disabled and recovery to "none". Reboot computer and remove with "Add and Remove Programs"

NOTE: Whenever you're having trouble uninstalling Norton and McAfee always make sure that nothing is disabled in MSCONFIG... startup and services tab you will have problems removing the program if any component is disabled pertaining to the software.
