So two days ago I went to a website (www.twiztv.com/scripts/onetreehill) and everything went to hell. I tried to close out as soon as I could but my browser froze and I had to end the program. Right before I was about to run a virus scan I got a pop up that said:

RegSvr32 DllregisterServer in C:\WINDOWS\system32\mcinsctl.dll succeeded.

Then I ran Malwarebytes and while that was happening I got a fake Scanner-Alert and shut down my internet connection for the duration of the scan. The scan caught the fake-alert and deleted it. But when I rebooted I got these two pop-ups (below) and it doesnt matter how many times I press "ok" they keep coming back. I cannot uninstall Mcafee because when I try I get a "send error report" before it closes.

I read on a different website about a manual way to uninstall McAfee but I couldn't delete the registry or whatever and it wouldn't work because I got the same error messages about not all components being installed or launched properly. The post is here: CNet Forums.

Please help me! I cannot afford to have this looked at by a professional and I had just restored my computer a month ago after a previous attack. I really really really don't want to go through that again!

That is what I was going to recommend.

It is the only way to fix issues like that. I have used similar from other vendors and it can sometimes take 30 minutes to remove the application.
