Has anyone figured out a sure fire way to get rid of McAfee!!!!
It seems to come bundled on a lot of OEM stuff, it came on my Toshiba and Acer lap tops. I had -0- issues getting it off the Acer when I reloaded it a couple years back, the Toshiba was also simple. Now my recent plight! On my Acer which is a mini with an SSD for travel I was checking disk space it was down to 15%, I decided to scrub and reload. That is when the Beast McAfee popped up, it is bundled on the Acer disks. I had -0- issue getting it off the last time I redid the machine, but this time it is driving me nuts. I follow the instructions to a "T" after all it has always worked in the past, well not this round!!!!! Like I said followed the instructions to a "T" I have since ended up reloading three times. I have issues with IE, but FF is Ok, MSE will not update even using the manual option from MS. I have done my absolute best trying to clear out the registry, though most McAfee keys are locked. Something must have changed as I had -0- issues in the past ridding mine and quite a few other machines of McAfee, trash like this should be illegal, I have many hours into this researching here and on the web plus the reloads.
Phil PARDON the rant but this has me going!
