VxD dynamic link call error

I have Windows Me. When I upgraded to AOL 9.0, it brought the MacAfee Personal Firewall with it. I already had Norton SystemWorks loaded. When I rean a Norton utility, the computer froze. After several calls to DELL, AOL, Norton and MacAffee, I manually took off the MacAffee firewall. I'm still getting the following error when I restart my computer:

VxD dynamic link call: MPFIREWL(01) + 00002431 to "347F", service 1.

I'm given the option to continue in windows, so I just press "Y" and move on. I know my system is unstable but no one seems to be able to tell me how to get rid of it. McAffee does not show up in my list of programs so I'm confused why I"m getting this error.

I saw a similar post to this, but didn't understand the solution. The thread was never finished.

Have you tried looking in the Registry under local machine, software, for anything related to it? Usually uninstalls are not very good about removing all the registry entries. It might also be in enumeration, but you have to be very carefull in the enumeration section and backup any changes you make.

Start>Run, type in regedit, hit OK. Careful what you do in there. I had to go into it a while back to remove the last traces of AOL from an HP machine.

:whistling: SIMPLE TO FIX!!! After running mcAfee uninstall, manually delete all mcAfee directories and files from hard drive, remove all McAfee DIRECTORIES from registry (RUN REGEDIT and look in the second and third catagories in sub catagories SOFTWARE) and uncheck all mcAfee related boxes in msconfig STARTUP section, then in msconfig... CLICK on dynamic VxD tab on top...UNCHECK the MPFIREWL (01) tab ...CLICK APPLY and restart...McAfee SUCKS when you try to get rid of it.
