I had McAfee on my work computer, but I thought I uninstalled it. After uninstalling it from Add/Remove Programs, I went into the registry and deleted what I found there that was McAfee. Guess that's where I screwed up. Now everytime I start my computer I get error messages because McAfee is trying to start up and can't find its files. Nothing else happens, but the pop-up windows when I start up are annoying and make me feel like an idiot. Can't wait til the boss sees them!

I did get a message the other day that McAfee wanted to update itself. I just clicked that off and it went away. Someone told me that there is a "run once" program in the registry that I need to find to make McAfee stop trying to start itself when my computer starts.

Any ideas?

Have you tried reinstalling it then uninstalling. After install and reboot,then shut it down,finally uninstall it.
