Can I directly deleted it from here C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\
Below is the log file
Fix in Safe mode did the job.
I don't see any other issues in your logs and the computer is now clean.
The following tips are regarding the RAM and hard disk's space:
Here you can run a free RAM wizard to determine which RAM is compatible with your motherboard. It will scan your computer and then recommend compatible RAM. You don't have to buy from them, but you can find out how much RAM the computer can accept. Since 85% of RAM is in use, you need to add RAM, so consider this.
2. Free some disk's space
Limited space can have a negative impact to your computer's functionality. You will not be able to update your operating system if you haven't got enough space. Of course, you have plenty of space in drive D, but your operating system is on drive C. A good idea would be saving your files in D from now on, especially those taking much space. This can help:
Do you have any other questions/concerns regarding this computer?
Can I directly deleted McAfree from here C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\
Can I directly deleted McAfree from here C:\Program Files\Common Files\McAfee\
Yes, of course! I should include it in the fix! If you get an error message, you can delete it in Safe mode.
I would like to add 16 GB RAM to my Laptop Intel COREi5 8th Generation. Is it possible? If yes. Which is the best for Dell Laptop?
Running the utility here will tell you how many slots for RAM sticks and how much RAM can your computer accept.
If no other question...
The following tool will remove the tools we used as well as reset system restore points:
Download KpRm by kernel-panik and save it to your desktop.
Now your computer is clean, here are some final tips about your computer's security from now on:
Some of the following, are from Klein's (2005) article, So how did I get infected in the first place. Since then, the article has been reproduced or linked to in dozens of locations. As a result, many malware experts have continued updating it, to include current operating systems and software program information. My source is Security Garden, and I marked for you the following:
1. Keep your Windows updated!
It is important always to keep current with the latest security fixes from Microsoft. This can patch many of the security holes through which attackers can infect your computer.
2. Update 3rd Party Software Programs
Third Party software programs have long been targets for malware creators. It has been stated that "Adobe’s Reader and Flash and all versions of Java are together responsible for a total of 66 percent of the vulnerabilities in Windows systems exploited by malware.'' It's important to keep everything updated.
3. Update the browsers you use
Many malware infections install themselves by exploiting security holes in the Internet browser that you use. So... Keep them updated.
4. Be careful about what you download and what you open!
5. Avoid questionable web sites!
Visit web sites that are trustworthy and reputable. Many disreputable sites will attempt to install malware on your system through "drive-by" exploits just by visiting the site in your browser. Lyrics sites, free software sites (especially ones that target young children), cracked software sites, and pornography sites are some of the worst offenders. Also, never give out personal information of any sort online or click "OK" to a pop-up unless it is signed by a reputable company and you know what it is.
6. Registry cleaners/driver boosters/system optimizers
I do not recommend registry cleaners, system optimizers, driver boosters and the like. It is your computer and certainly your choice. However, please consider that modifying registry keys incorrectly can cause Windows instability, or make Windows unbootable. With registry cleaner and system optimization software programs, the potential is ever present to cause more problems than they claim to fix. Do note, however, that Microsoft does not support the use of registry cleaners. See Microsoft support policy for the use of registry cleaning utilities.
7. PC means personal computer!
Don't give access to your computer to friends or family who appear to be clueless about what they are doing.
8. Back-up your work!
Make back-ups of your personal files frequently. You never know when you'll have to reformat and start from scratch. You can always reformat and reinstall programs, but you cannot replace your data if you haven't made backups.
9. Must-Have Software
An anti-virus and an anti-spyware program is a necessity for the security of your computer. Be sure that you keep them updated, and that real time protection is enabled. You have the built-in Windows 10 Windows Defender as your antivirus, as well as Malwarebytes as antimalware. You can use it for a daily scan (or weekly, depending on how much you use your computer). Both can keep you safe if you follow the safe computing rules.
If you have any questions or concerns please don't hesitate to ask!
I'm glad I was able to help you.
Thank You so much. Can I know which country are you from? I'm from India, Hyderabad.
You are very welcome. I am a Greek.
I hope things are getting better in India, regarding the pandemic. Take care, stay safe!
As this issue appears to be resolved, I'm closing this topic.
If you need it reopened, please send me a personal message (Hoover with the mouse on my profile name and choose Send message).
