I wanted to uninstall McAfee to install a different antivirus. I did the normal add/remove Mcafee and it doesn't show up anywhere on my machine aside from when I try to install my new antivirus it tells me that it detects the Site Advisor and to remove it. I can't find it one my machine so how can I remove it?

The link is broken and when I try to download the uninstaller from McAfee's website their link is broken also. I have complained for a long time that Norton's was worse than a virus to remove, now McAfees has joined them. The new versions are a nightmare to remove.
