I want to uninstall Radial Point from my computer in order to install MacAfee. I have removed it from my list of programs but McAfee is still asking me to remove it so obviously something is left. What do I do?

My question is, what is Radial Point? What was it used for?

EDIT: I found this: http://kb.freedom.net/index.php?ToDo=view&Frame=1&questId=53&catId=13

Radial Point was used by Bell for internet security. They are switching over to MacAfee and when I tried to install it they had me uninstall Radial point. I did but some fragments must remain because though its off my list of programs Macafee says it's still there and won't install.

My suggestion is to contact Bell since they are the ones initiating the switch. They should be supporting you with this change. I am unfamiliar with Radial Point.

Radial Point is a Montreal based company that provides computer security software to ISPs for their users. I have Radial Point through my cable company Rogers. If Bell is switching to McAfee, you are correct in stating that Bell would have the instructions for the switch probably on their website. Also, Revo should work for this. I used Revo when Rogers switched from Norton to Radial Point a couple of years ago.

In case you want to try

Revo Uninstaller:

1.Please download Revo Uninstaller

.
2.Extract the ZIP file to a folder and run revouninstaller.exe from there! (You can copy that folder to an USB Mass storage

drive and use it without any installation required!)
3.There are two ways to uninstall programs with Revo Uninstaller:

Important: Please, try to close the application you want to uninstall first!
Select the application in the list of installed

applications and press the Uninstall button in the toolbar.
Right-click the application and click the Uninstall command in the

displayed menu. Follow the instructions.
