Hi, my name is Jeff
I am trying to install McAffee on a second computer (operating system: Windows XP). When running setup I got a message stating there was a conflict with CA Anti-Virus and I needed to uninstall, then restart and continue setup. I went to the control panel under ad/ remove programs and uninstalled it. After restart, the same message appeared. I ran a search for any remaining pieces of the program the uninstall might have missed with no results. I then downloaded virtual technician from McAffee which got rid of the anti-virus, spyware removal and other programs, but left the 'CA personal firewall'. I have no idea how to find and uninstall this program. McAffee support seems to think that the problem lies in the register system, but I don't know enough to tinker with that. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
