I want to completely unistall Mcafee and re-install. However I need to remove all traces of the old installation, but uninstall does not do that. Any ideas how to complete this

You will not remove entirely, but the following is as near as you will get.

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
