I can't find a way to uninstall McAfee after a re-install of Windows XP. It's a trial version and I can't get it to uninstall through Add/Remove programs. It keeps saying it's running but I can't find a way to shut it down. I even tried to delete the folder in program folders-won't let me. How do I get rid of this thing called McAfee suite?

Thanks Reddawn, the tool did the trick. :thumbsup: That's almost as bad as trying to get rid of some malware. :flowers:
