When trying to remove a virus, I used System Restore. A few days earlier, I uninstalled the McAfee Security Protection, having changed to Microsoft Security Essentials. Now, when I turn on my computer, I get the message "Some McAfee components might not have been installed or launched properly. Restart your computer to fix this. If this message appears again after the restart, please reinstall McAfee Security Center." At the same time the message "Some components of Active Shield are missing and might not have been installed properly." There is no McAfee icon on the bottom toolbar and the only McAfee program in Add/Remove Programs is the McAfee Uninstall wizard. No file size appears to the right of it. These messages appear several times before they stop. I use Windows XP Media Center Edition 2004 with PS2 and have downloaded PS3. I would like to get rid of this in order to get to the next step in trying to remove the virus.
