Wednesday night, I got a notice it was out of date. I opened McAfee and pressed the fix button. I got a notice that tere were errors and to reinstall. So I logged into my uverse accsount and downloaded and tried to reinstall. I got a notice that it can't proceed because I need to uninstall CA Antivirus 126.96.36.199, which I know I uninstalled long ago.
Going to msconfig, I found a Computer Associate file in the setting area. It is now unchecked and stopped, but when I press OK, it wsays I am not an admin, yet I am able to set up new accounts and make them admins. But those admins have the same result.
A friend who runs a computer shope told me to manually delete the Isafe.exe file. That is the location of the CAV.exe file. Speciifcally programe Files/Yahooo/Antivirus/Isafe.exe
I have ran SuperAntiSpyware and MalwareBytes yesterday and successfully removed what they found. I tried to run Panda Antivirus, but after reaching 11% in ten mins, 18% after 24 hours, it froze just under 1,000,000 files but I ddi see it found five additional items.
My OS is Windows XP home SP 3.
Thanks and let me know if you need more info.
