I fired Comcast as an ISP. Comcast had supplied a version of McAfee anti virus. I can't update the McAfee, and it will not fully uninstall or remove.
After running the Uninstall utility in the Control Panel in Win2K Pro, I still have on the machine part of McAfee Anti Virus.
Specifically, on C drive, in Program Files, there is a folder called McSAfee. In that folder is a subfolder called MSC.
In the first level of that MSC folder are the following files:
None of these folders will delete, erase or uninstall. When an attempt is made to delete, erase or uninstall, I get a message box stating:
“Cannot delete (filename): Access is denied. The source file may be in use.”
That folder also has a sub folder called OEM. In the OEM folder is a further sub folder called 108; In the 108 subfolder is the file:
This folder will not delete , erase or uninstall. When an attempt is made to do so, I get a message box stating:
“Cannot delete mccobres: Access is denied. The source file may be in use.”
I need to permanently delete, erase or uninstall all the above files.
Their presence and presumed activity are preventing the download / installation of other programs, including another vendor’s anti virus files.
Other than loading a DOS boot file and bypassing the Win2Kpro OS, and manually typing in the DOS commands to del the files, have you any ideas?
Do I also need to edit the Registry o make ure I kill McAfee? If so, what do I look for?
