uninstalled mcafee but when i right-click on something i still get a mcafee scan option?  how do i remove it? i am runnning microsoft windows 7 starter x86 32 bit thanks.  

 

I have already ran revo pro uninstaller and removed some registry items.  i ran the program in advanced mode and removed everything.

 

its basically gone but i still get a mcafee icon on the desktop every time i turn on the computer and when i right click a file it gives me a (mcafee) scan button which does nothing because the p'rograms not there...

 

this nuances are frustrating how do i remove them?

 

Thanks in advance.

You probably have leftovers...run the noknojon removal tool.
