My subscription to Mcafee ended so I am trying to remove it and install a different virus scanner.
I browsed the forum and saw instructions on a similar problem posted a while back where the user had trouble uninstalling McaFee. I followed the instructions of Add/Remove, but I did it twice because for some reason it didn't go away the first time. The second time through the program folder was deleted. However, when I checked in msconfig there was still remnants of McaFee in the services section (McShield, McaFee Firewall Core Service, McaFee Validation Trust Protection Service). I could turn them off except the validation trust protection service. I decided to create a system restore point before I downloaded and used the Mcafee removal tool. After it finishes it would reboot and that is when my comp would not even load up so I would have to go into safe mode and restore. Before restoring it says what would be changed or added and the only thing listed is the Mcafee driver.
I downloaded the Window Installer Cleanup Utility program and tried it but McaFee was not listed.
Thanks for any assistance given.
