Im beginning to wonder if you have a trojan? Have you done a virus scan? and if it looks like the scan is inhibbited, try to do a scan from a site that allows web virus scaning, like trend micro.

uninstall mcafee and try a restore. And if you go online to do a webscan for viruses, turn on your firewall.

I beleive with some applications you can uninstall using the disk that came with the program. How did you try to uninstall mcafee? Did you put the mcafee disk in and find an option to uninstall?
