Cant follow links in IE so cant download Mcafee AV

  Major Disaster 12:32 26 Oct 2005


Recently i have noticed that some random links in internet explorer and msn messenger have stopped working. Eg. when signing into msn a little box pops up saying i have new emails, usually i click on it to go to hotmail inbox, no when i click nothing happens!

A few weeks ago i tried to unistall mcafee antispyware (though it did not have an unistaller). So i deleted as many enteries as possible, but still said Mcafee Antispyware when i righ click on mcafee security centre.

I asked mcafee help. They said to unisnatll and then reinstall mcafee.

Now i have unistalled mcafee, but when i go to the mcafee website to redownload mcafee, i click on the link to say "continue" to the download nothing happens!

Help please (i have avast while mcafee is down)
Thanks again
