I'll reserve my opinion about McAfee and simply provide you some help with the complete removal...

This page will give you some additional info about removing all instances of the program. Scroll down to Removing McAfee Automatically to find a link to a utility that will strip all instances of McAfee products from your machine.

McAfee may have altered the firewall or the TCP/IP settings on your machine thus throwing off your internet connection so let's start by making sure it's all gone and if you still have a problem after teh removal post back here and we'll try a couple of other things.

I can't access McFee protection on my Dell pc. The McAfee icon has disappeared from desk top and the link at the bottom right hand side of screen doesn't work.


The advantage of using McAfee is they have a very good support system. Google 'McAfee support' and take it from there. I have found the live chat with a McAfee to be very good.

I just want my money back. Because it asks me to uninstall a program I want to keep, Mcafee


Since McAfee is asking you to uninstall it, I am sure the program would have come in the spyware/adware list. They may have analysed that the software might create problems in your computer.

Do this.

install Microsoft virtual pc 2007, install xp on a virtual machine using this software.
Log into the virutal machin win xp , and instlal your software. If you connect to internet using that software, you can also install the internet device drivers.

YOu happy, Mcafee happy! atlast your systemis safe.

Installed McAfee on Compaq Presario F700. IE7 frozed up.


If you have McAfee Internet Security, there could be some settings that have disabled connection. I had this issue with McAfee once myself.

Open the McAfee security center and try to tone down any firewall settings, antiphishing, etc. For me, I turned off antiphishing and firewall altogether and it worked, but maybe not recommended.

My Mcafee anti-virus is about to finish,how do I install Advast free,do I download advast then uninstall/delete Mcafee then install advast free with Reg key. Thanx in advance !!!


Multiple anti-virus programs on a computer conflict with each other, as well as installation may fail when trying to install one Anti-virus program when another one is still on the computer.

Download Avast
Disable your internet connection, or unplug the ethernet cable
Uninstall McAfee
Install Avast
Hook your internet back up
Use your reg key and update Avast.

You just don't want an unsecured computer with an active internet connection even during the short period of time between uninstalling the old one and installing the new one

McAfee not updating


Some files might have been corrupted somehow.

As per the error, you need to uninstall Mcafee and then reboot the computer. Then once your windows boots back, re-install Mcafee from the CD you purchased. That should solve any corruption problems.

Need help uninstalling?  Click Start -> Run, then type appwiz.cpl and press enter. You will get the Add/Remove programs. Go down and select Mcafee Total Security and click on remove and follow the simple instructions on the screen.
