    vegakitten20,



    The problem presented involved the WinAntiVirus showing in control panel, but not among my programs, thus the un-install option was not available.



    Gentlemen:

    After seeking your help yesterday, I was able to purchase a virus scan that enabled me to un-install the WinAntiVirus program from my notebook computer. However, I am still not able to re-install my McAfee security system. I am taking that up with them. Thanks!

Dell Inspiron 570 with Macafee anti-virus and Win 7 BSOD's trying to uninstall preinstalled Macafee product. Haw can I get rid of it and install another (Norton) product? I have 2 IDENTICAL Dells


LOL, you are going from one terrible product to another one. Norton and McAfee are core hogs, use a lot of resources and will slow your system to a crawl, especially if you let it expire. Why would you want something on your system that is so difficult to uninstall? Give em the boot. Try one of the FREE Antivirus programs such as AVG, AVAST or Microsoft Security Essentials.

Dell did not create this monster, your third party software is the culprit and they just don't deal with it if it's not their product.

Anyway if you tried the normal uninstall by clicking Start/Programs and opening the McAfee Folder and clicking uninstall and you're getting the BSOD, maybe try uninstalling it in Safe Mode With Networking.

Turn off the computer, then hit the power button to turn itback on and immediately start hitting the F8 key repeatedly until you see SAFEMODE. Take the Safe Mode With Networking option and let it boot up. Safe Mode will lookdifferent to you, the screen will be darker and the icons bigger, this isnormal.You can also go into the Control Panel and Uninstall the Program. Click Start/Control Panel look for Program and Features or Programs or Uninstall.
You can try the McAfee Removal Tool. Download and Install it, then run it. The link is below:http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe

Itunes cannot open . error code is -50. even after reinstalling everything new.


Do you have Norton Security? It could be blocking it.
Uninstall Norton and try AVG antivirus. Norton is a horrible program, I've had bad experiences.
Or disable any antivirus or firewall you have and try running iTunes.
Or try this.
1. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> iTunes --> Remove
...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer
2. Go to Control Panel --> Add or Remove Programs --> QuickTime --> Remove
...uninstall the program completely and restart your computer
3. Go to My Computer --> Local Disc --> Program Files. Once in Program Files you will see the iTunes and QuickTime folder and you will want to delete the iTunes folder and the QuickTime folder. Right click on the iTunes folder and select delete and confirm the deletion. Do the same for QuickTime.
4. Restart your computer
5. Disable all features of any anti-virus program such as Norton or McAfee
6. Open Internet Explorer or which ever internet program you use and go to http://www.apple.com/itunes/download/ and download the iTunes+QuickTime program. *Do not do any modifications in the download of the program.* Just download the program by doing the usual "Next" clicking.
7. Once iTunes is finished downloading, double click on the Shortcut Icon on the desktop. iTunes should open with a large square box and you have to click "Agree."
Should be good to go.

I have bought mcafee cd from the store and after i restarted the computer my computer freezes at the windows xp screen. how do i fix this?


Hi
I know this may sound childish but the answer right now is to remove Mcafee. Do this by going into SAFE mode. Press F8 while the computer is rebooting. Once at the SAFE menu select SAFE mode with networking. Once into SAFE mode goto START, Control Panel, Programs and Features. From there uninstall Mcafee. I had you go to the network mode because now you will need to download the Mcafee uninstall tool. This will remove the remaining pieces of Mcafee. Once all this is done go to normal mode and please check to make sure you don't have any other anti virus programs installed - these will definitely mess with Mcafee. If there are no other anti virus programs installed I have to assume it was a virus or malware that interfered with your Mcafee install. Unless you have them already I would suggest you download and then run these programs AVGFREE.exe, MALWAREBYTES.exe and SUPERANTISPYWARE.exe. You can download these from www.download.com. Once these are completed, we know your system is clean, now run the Mcafee install and everything should work fine. Good luck

My computer is still tellng me that I don't have virus protection.


Try to uninstall / reinstall your security program, or uninstall any conflicting program with your security.
It seems like Windows is not detecting your anti-virus software.

Cannot serf internet cause of spyware virus


it sounds like your virus protection has expired and you may have a firewall up blocking the internet connection.

two options: pay mcafee the yearly renewal or go here http://www.download.com/AVG-Anti-Virus-Free-Edition/3000-2239_4-10320142.html?part=dl-10044820&subj=dl&tag=button&cdlPid=11009475
and download a free professional antivirus, anti-spyware, and extensive firewall.

if you do download the new FREE program, make sure you completely uninstall ALL virus and spyware programs you may already have installed. Including Mcafee.


after youve decided what you will do and finished that part. open your web browser, go to internet options, advanced, and reset to default settings. then select the security tab and set to normal.

you should be all set!! Good Luck

Anti virus


Definitely do not use more than one antivirus program. Using more than one can cause problems and is unnecessary.

To find your antivirus program there are several ways you can do this but you would need to know the name of the program you are looking for.

1) Click My Computer\C Local disk\Program Files
or
2) Click start\programs then look at all the installed software.

It is unlikely that you have two antivirus programs installed. If you do, I would strongly advise that you uninstall one.

It is important to keep your antivirus software and virus definitions up to date.

Respected programs are
Norton Antivirus
McAfee

Or free AVG Antivirus
