Uninstall or Disable Security

Running windows ME. Installed Mc Afee 2005 and at first worked ok and i could uninstall/reinstall etc.However since it updated itself it has slowed Pc down very much and will not now uninstall. It now takes abbout 10 mins to start up and i then disable it so i can use Pc.Does anyone know how i could uninstall OR stop it running in start up

Start, Run, type


and click OK.

On the startup tab look for anything with "mcafee" in it and untick.

That will stop it running at startup and you may then be able to uninstall it.

Thanks VoG. I have looked on the start up tab but only come across "MCAgent", "MCUpdate" and "McVsRte" I will try these, i can always re-tick them if no joy. I tried system restore at one point but was advised that i couldnt even do this anymore as a file was still running when it wasnt. Any way here goes.......

Yes, that did the trick.
Thanks again
