You can't uninstall any antivirus program through add/remove through Cpanel. Because registry file remains on your computer. Which causes a problem in installing any other antivirus. To Remove Antivirus program you should use Antivirus Removal Tool. here you can use Webroot removal tool to delete registry files of Webroot then try again to install McAfee.
this will help you.
You can download Webroot Removal Tool from here

Go to McAfee.com In search type: MCPR or McAfee removal tool. You can also do a google search. Make sure you select the McAfee removal tool from "McAfee." Download and save the tool to your desktop. Close all programs and run the tool. If not prompt to restart, please do so anyway.
PLEASE NOTE: Run all McAfee products as administrator.

Alleged conflict mcafee w webroot spy sweeper


Hi,
If spysweeper was installed then you should find it in "add remove programs" (XP) or "programs and features" (Vista) both can be found in the control panel.
When you open it look for webroot.
If it's not there type regedit in the search or run box, click on edit and select find, type webroot into the text box and search for any registry entry relating to spysweeper (webroot).
If your registry finds an entry click on find next and keep on doing this until the registry is cleared, then restart your PC and try and update Mcafee.
If you can't find any registry entry relating to webroot your PC maybe infected with spyware, malware or a virus. In that case i would perform a deep scan of the system whether your antivirus is updated or not.


Good luck and please post back if you need anymore help.

Webroot problems


I just went through this this afternoon, I spent 8 hours removing and updating and loading McAfee and running it too.

Webroot is a bad program, it is hard to remove and some of the componets just cannot be removed unless you do a search for the file and then delete it....if you need a certain dll then the anti-virus should detect that and remove or quarantine it.

I would suggest that you remove Webroot, and install another anti-virus program...I swear by McAfee, it removed over 30 problems or quarantined them, it works and is well worth the money spent....If you have Comcast, it is FREE to download on all of your computers in your home....just part of the internet service.

PS...Uniblue registry booster is no good, and another one that is hard to remove...it has spyware too.

McAfee conflicting with Webroot


www.ccleaner.com

Run the free trial version, it should correct any errors in your registry, assuming that you uninstalled it correctly.

Removing webroot spy sweeper


This worked for me. Search the registry for webroot (start->run->type 'regedit'); in regedit, find 'webroot'. Delete the folder that has webroot (it has sub-folder 'spy sweeper'). McAfee should finish installing.

I need to load Mcafee onto a new computer


To avoid conflicts, you should uninstall any other security software you have now, either through its own uninstall or by going to the Control Panel "Add and Remove Programs".

Install the new software. Run its update program immediately if it didn't do it automatically during the install process.
