My friend had McAfee installed on his PC. He uninstalled it as it was just about to run out and was going to install AVG. I don't think he uninstalled McAfee correctly as he is now getting the message...
"Some components of ActiveShield are either missing or might not have been installed properly"
We have tried to reinstall McAfee but it fails every time. He is running XP Pro. Any help in solving this problem would be appreciated.
very basic, but I find it works for lots of bits left behind: Start>search> type in mcaffee in "files & folders named..". Delete any that have a reference to Mcaffee. Worth repeating with other names associated with the program (eg if it was AVG you were deleting do a search for AVG AND for Grisoft.
