Hi, again. I ran McAfee removal tool twice, The program after cleaning said: "Error obtaining full perrmision for cleanup. some products may not be fully removed." After restarting and runnung it second time and restarting again, I got same message with an error and I ran RegCure. The pop ups are gone, but when I want to install any program like NOD32, or so, the installations stops in the middle and brings the message that it can not install to Program Files... and "Verify that you have access to that directory". What kind of access I need to have? I never needed it before. Tanya

2. Installing MSXML 3 & 4: - Check if you already have MSXMLs installed on your Computer by going to START >> CONTROL PANEL >> ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS or PROGRAMS >> PROGRAMS & FEATURES (In Case of Windows Vista/7). - If you find MSXMLs, Uninstall them & then Restart the Computer. - Download and Reinstall MSXML version 3 (MSXML3.msi only). - Restart the computer. - Download and install MSXML version 4 (MSXML.msi only). - Restart the computer. - Run McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe) from http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe - Reinstall the McAfee Program.
Good morning! If you receive a "1920" error regarding failure to start a McAfee Service when trying to update or install Mcafee VirusScan, follow the instructions below. WARNING: This procedure involves editing the Windows Registry. Using Registry Editor incorrectly can cause serious, system-wide problems that may require you to re-install Windows to correct them. Use this tool at your own risk.
Uninstall McAfee VirusScan Enterprise using the "Add/Remove Programs" option in the Control Panel.
If present, delete c:\Program Files\Network Associates and c:\Program Files\Common Files\Network Associates
Go to the Start menu, select Run, and type regedit .
Find and delete the registry key HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Network Associates.
Restart the computer.
Install McAfee VirusScan Enterprise and update the software.
Was the other antivirus/firewall program you had installed on your PC McAfee or another brand? If there was another brand (example: Symantec) you will need to run a full uninstall utility (accessable from most software vendors websites). If the other antivirus/firewall was McAfee, run the full uninstall utility which is called the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool which you can obtain at the link I provided below; again this is for McAfee products only. If the last software you had on your PC was McAfee, then run this tool, this will do a complete job of removing old remnants that Add/Remove does not. It will then reboot your PC, and after which you should be able to reinstall your new McAfee software.
