I have a trial version of Mcaffee Virus Scan which has expired, now I get an annoying notice every time I turn on my computer telling me to renew my subscription. I do not want to keep Mcaffee as I have another, ( and I think better Virus scan programme). My problem is that, every time I delete Mcaffee, it removes my broadband connection and I cannot connect to the Internet unless I restore my computer, ( and, of course, re-install Mcaffee). Can ayone help? Johnny F.
My McAfee subscription expired a few weeks ago and I only finished getting rid of all it's componets yesterday. Try these steps.
1. Create a restore point 2. Add/remove McAfee in Safe mode (F8 at boot up) Restart (probably not needed if you've already done it) 3. Seach all files & Folders (including hidden files) for McAfee and delete 4. Search registry for all McAfee keys, delete. 5. Check your firewall for all McAfee entries and remove 5. Start-Run type msconfig and hit enter to see you start-up settings, remove any that start with Mc (Mcagent, Mcschedule and especially an entry that will say "msci" and tries to start mcinfo.exe - this last one triggers McAfee to send you an email reminder). 6. Check your Active X compoents - I use Spybot (advanced mode, tools) to do this - there may be two McAfee entries, delete.
That should do it.
