I recently installed McAfee's free 90-day trial on my new computer while I decided which anti-virus I was going to use and I wanted my computer protected while I searched the internet. I decided to go with Kaspersky anti-virus for several reasons. I went ahead and uninstalled McAfee from the control panel and then proceeded to install Kaspersky. When I try to install Kaspersky it says that it detects McAfee Internet Security and that I have to remove this before installation continues. I went to McAfee's website and tried the McAfee removal tool but the webpage brings up an error. Has anyone else experienced this problem and is there any other program out there to remove McAfee.

I've found some other links that work but I'm worried about the security of these links and also whether they are useful for the current version of McAfee. Any help that can be provided will be greatly appreciated because I really don't want to reformat my harddrive just to remove McAfee.

Thanks in advance. :thumbsup:

Thanks a lot. I actually found an alternate link last night for the removal tool. The problem with McAfee support is that you have to have a paid subscription to be able to contact them by phone for free. Hopefully these links will help anyone having the same issues.

Thanks :thumbsup:
