Hello,
First let me explain my problem, I bought McAfee Internet Security Suite 2006 because my older one expired. I installed MCAfee without Uninstalling the older version but then again it over-wrote the older one so everything is fine right? Wrong :thumbsup: I cant register my McAfee Products so now I cant get any DAT updates! :flowers: One of my friends suggested to re-install McAfee and I thoguht that might work but the worst possible thing can happen has happened! I cant uninstall McAfee Directly because they dont have a uninstaller, Add/remove Programs ain't helkping because that stuffed up and currently get it fixed! I searched google and BC and across a progam called MCAfee Uninstaller from Tg1191! Thanks Mate!! But it did clean up some old files but didn;t uninstall McAfee!! So does anyone know some good methods or even some good programs that would uninstall the whole McAfee lot for good so that I can reinstall it?

Thanking you in advance :trumpet:

:thumbsup: $150...for MacAfee? At that price MacAfee should be cutting back flips to help you. Have you contacted them yet?

Wow! They charged you $150 for 2 lic. and still want to charge you to trouble shoot their product? That is sad.

Man thats insane Macfee ought to be kissing your butt. I've never heard of this problem. What you need is a 3rd party Uninstaller like iolo's got in their system mechanic suite. I have used it and the link below has 30 days freeHere


Edit: Huh? I just uninstalled My version of Macafee (compleate System Restore thanks PC Angel, right) right through the windows control pannel
