Can't uninstall McFee

  Drumz 19:47 24 Feb 2005

I've bought a new Dell system with McFee Internet security pre-installed.
I want to install Norton but when I try to uninstall McFee security centre I get the message "cannot open Install.log file"
Does anyone know how to get round this?

go to start - run - msconfig and go to startup tab at top right. Take the tick out of mcfee in the box on lhs then reboot. You should now be able to uninstall it.

Try First Add Remove in Control Panel. THEN
To remove follow these step's closely, go to start\find\files or folders type in the box McAfee click enter key delete all the entry's it finds with McAfee in it. Next go to start run type regedit and press enter, go to menu under edit click find in the box type McAfee and press enter it will bring up only one entry at a time, press delete key then click ok to confirm to go to next entry press F3 and delete do this until you get to the end of the registry. DO NOT TOUCH ANYTHING ELSE IN THE REGISTRY other than McAfee then reboot your computer
