I received a 2006 Dell Dimnesion E310 computer from my neice a few days ago. I believe it originally had McAfee Security Center installed however it no longer functions and I would like to uninstall it from this computer. I tried the usual Control Panel-Add/Remove but there was an error and it would not uninstall. The computer has Windows XP Media Center OS. I tried registering for McAfee Community Help forums but I believe you must be a current owner of a McAfee product to have some code that allows you to register. I don't have acceess to any other info peretaining to the McAfee product installed. The computer is not online so I would have to transfer any downloads via CD. If anyone knows the procedure to remove this product please do tell. Thank you.

There was also this at the top of the AntiVirus, Firewall and Privacy Products and Protection Methods forum: List of Antivirus Uninstallers and Removal Tools
