I'm running 2m pro, 130 megs of ram on a Compaq Dell Dimensions V400.

There is an old install of McAfee that I want to get rid of and can't do it. When I go through the Install and uninstall applet not only does it not uninstall, but it freezes Task Mgr, or else it is just sitting there. When I close the running applet the interface remains and I can't do anything until I reboot.

Any ideas?

Thanks, BuddyB

Have you got the disk(s) that the old version of McAfee was installed from? If so, install again over the top of what's there, and then try to uninstall.

Um...

So, is it a Compaq V400, or a Dell Dimension? I'm a little confused here...

Greetings! (my first post in this kind of forum).. since BBS time!

Uhm... I don't know your OS, but one of the things that I would recommend would be to try to get in Win in safe mode. From there (with just a few drivers loaded) run the uninstall again.
There might be a good chance you manage to remove it. There are other options like editing your registry to remove certain RUN key to void it to be loaded (and even later deleted manually).

That's it for now.... how about it?

That's what I would have tried first! -- dlh

Good input, thanks. I did solve the problem. I ditched my old computer, bought a new one, re-formatted the HD and installed XP Svc Pk 2.

Have you made sure ALL PROCESS'S OF MCAFEE ARE TERMINATED?? (Open Task Manager and make sure)

Try downloading REGSEEKER and removing mcafee from your startup entries,then reboot and try and remove it then :) (Regseeker is also the BEST reg cleaner i have ever found)


Good luck....Welcome to our site!
