hi again... :blink:

now everything seems to work pretty ok. the one thing that remains is that every time i start my computer now, mcafee (!!) tells me some components of activeshield are missing. there is still a mcafee.com folder in my programs on c:/. i tried to delete it but it doesn't work!

Here is some opitions before I head off.

Please try to delete the file in safe mode.

Here is how to access safe mode.

Reboot the Machine.

After you see the BIOS, keep tapping F8 intill you see a menu. Choose Safe Mode. Let it load up all the files. Choose your account. Locate the folder and try to delete it.


Now do this.

Click Start. Click Run type "msconfig" (no quotes please)

Click the start up tab. Look for any signs of McAfee and uncheck them. If anything looks suspicious and looks like mcafee, post it here and i'll tell you if it is or not.

Let me know how everything goes :whistling:

Open Outlook, click tools, options, other, advanced, COM add ins, remove McAfee

Sorry if this has been dealt with earlier, but what was the problem with McAfee running

Do you want to use it, have you got the installation software or the product key
