    Uninstall McAffe Anti virus

    I am trying to remove McAffe Anti virus, i get the following error message: (see attachment) when I try to remove Antisypware.
    When i try to remove McAffe security Center, it says that I have to remove first all the McAffe components.

    Can some one tell me how to do this?

    Thanks Skender

    Skender,
    What other McAfee products do you have installed?
    It looks like it wants you to remove all the others before it will let you remove the Security Center.


    I don't have or use ( or want to use ) any McAfee products so I can't help you too much here. The only other suggestion I have is to remove ALL of McAfee, using the AddRemove component in Control Panel. ( and replace it with another AV and Security Suite )

    Also, if you still want McAfee, then after the complete uninstall, Reinstall the other products without the AntiSpyware feature. I assume it will let you do that.

    Re: Uninstall McAffe Anti virus

    I too gave up on McAfee products a few years ago but when I last REMOVED their antivirus product, there were explicit instructions on their web site on what you had to do to get rid of all of it. I suggest you first do what Bob has suggested and use Control Panel's Add/Remove and see what happens. You may have to visit their web pages to find out what to do from there.

    Re: Uninstall McAffe Anti virus

    I'm not sure in what order the McAfee must be uninstalled, but this Google might help if you can't get this information directly from McAfee.
    As for the error message you're receiving, I've had this problems on a few occasions when a file has been corrupted or has gone missing. In most cases, a reinstall of the product restores the missing file and the uninstall then proceeds normally.

    Go to this site and download the McAfee uninstaller. Make sure you select the version for the Operating System that you have installed on you r machine ( XP,98,2000, etc )

    Check out Remove McAfee
