I have no virus/malware protection on my computer at this time. I have went through many different programs trying to find one the works for me. I'm trying to download Kaspersky's but it says that I have McAfee components that are not compatable and that I must uninstall them before proceeding but I can't find anything from McAfee in my computer when I search for them. I've read many message boards trying to figure out how to get rid of them, but it's been no help. Can anyone tell me why I find McAfee components only hen I installing Kaspersky's?

Download and run the McAfee Removal Tool to get rid of it fully

Now I have a different set of problems when I run it in Safe Mode. It tells me that I can''t obtain full permission to run the removal tool.

hmm lets try remove it manually

  • Download OTListIt2 to your desktop.
  • Double click on the icon to run it. Make sure all other windows are closed and to let it run uninterrupted.
  • When the window appears, underneath Output at the top change it to Minimal Output.
  • Check the boxes beside LOP Check and Purity Check.
  • Under Custom Scan paste this in

    netsvcs
    msconfig
    safebootminimal
    safebootnetwork
    activex
    drivers32
    %systemroot%\System32\antiwpa.dll
    %systemroot%\SYSTEM32\wpa.dll
    %systemroot%\setup\scripts\biestart.exe
    %systemroot%\system32\drivers\royal.sys
    %SYSTEMDRIVE%\*.
    %PROGRAMFILES%\*.

  • Click the Run Scan button. Do not change any settings unless otherwise told to do so. The scan wont take long.
  • When the scan completes, it will open two notepad windows. OTListIt.Txt and Extras.Txt. These are saved in the same location as OTListIt2.
  • Please copy (Edit->Select All, Edit->Copy) the contents of these files, one at a time, and post it with your next reply. You may need two posts to fit them all in.
