    Uninstalling McAfee (XP Home)

    I couldn't uninstall the demo McAfee on a friend's brand new computer. I tried the usual Control Panel Add/Remove programs, but upon starting up the remove it said that some component of McAfee was still running so it couldn't uninstall. I couldn't find a way to turn McAfee off. McAfee's windows had no place to terminate the program. I briefly looked at the Processes running, but wasn't sure which ones were McAfee. So finally I tried booting up in Safe Mode, but when I tried to run Control Panel it indicated that I needed a higher screen resolution, as Safe Mode started up in the lowest resolution. However, it wouldn't let me increase screen resolution, so I was at a dead end. Any suggestions on how to get around this problem?
