I used Onecare for the past 6 months on 3 machines and never had a problem. I actually loved it. Recently I had all sorts of issues so I decided to uninstall and go back to the old favorites. When I uninstalled from Control Panel - Add Remove programs, it worked fine. It said it uninstalled it. Problem is, I still have MpEng.exe and others running in my processes tab. They will not "end". The Onecare folder is still in Program files. The uninst file in that folder does not work. Microsoft has told me to reinstall and uninstall. I have done this several times with the same results.

Any Ideas.
