Program refuses to uninstall

I need to uninstall my current firewall but it refuses to uninstall either via its own "uninstall now" option or the "Add/Remove programs" routine.
I click "uninstall" but nothing happens.
Is there any other way to get rid of it?

What firewall is it Mick

Its McAfee,I don't want to point my finger at it unfairly but I suspect its causing glitches across my system.
I disabled it but the glitches still occur, so I need to uninstall it to positively eliminate it from my enquiries.
If the glitches still occur after it's gone I'll know it's not to blame..

If you have the Mcafee suite i suspect its a matter of uninstall procedure... i will try to find the correct procedure for you.

try safe mode?

with McAfee

Either pop the disc in or double click the .exe, then click install and then an option will pop up to repair/install or remove

Click remove and it should uninstall it

Okay guys i'll try a few things to lose it, but first I'd better install another firewall hadn't I, rather than leave my system unprotected?
Can anybody recommend a free one?
