    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!

Windows 7 Keygen won't execute and causes a APPCRASH


Delete any new programs that you have downloaded.


Often, the cause of corruption in a computer system is a bad download that installs harmful files.


If you started to get the Appcrash error on your system after downloading a new program or software from the Internet, it's highly likely you have downloaded a bad product.


Use the "Add/Remove Programs" feature in the Control Panel to get rid of the program immediately.


Uninstall the program that is crashing.


It is possible to fix the program's corrupted files while the program is still installed, but to make sure that you clear the program files completely, it is safest to completely uninstall it from the system.


Run a full scan of your computer.


Your computer should already have antivirus software installed that can scan for corrupted files and either fix them or delete them from your system.


If you do not have antivirus software on your computer, that could be a big part of the problem.


Purchase and install antivirus software as soon as possible.


Once you have the antivirus program installed, open it and click "Scan Computer."


The antivirus scan will isolate bad files and you will be given the option to remove them from your system.


Reinstall the program that was crashing.


Now that the corrupted files have all been removed, your program should run smoothly after reinstallation.


Check for program incompatibility.


If, after a thorough scan and cleaning of your computer and reinstallation of your program, the


Appcrash errors continue, the program you are trying to use may not be compatible with your operating system or other programs on your computer


rather than purchasing an antivirus program use one of these freeware programs

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

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
