After the uninstall, I ran scandisk and Spybot- Search and Destroy with IE resident shield. I have since been receiving a message telling me that I have changed registry keys. The keys in question are for MSN Messenger and McAfee Update Manager.
I'm not sure how to go about removing the rest of the messenger from my pc and updating the reg to reflect the new location of the McAfee Update Manager, or how to get it work on the old location.
I was reading this post ( On Going Problem...trying To Diagnose ) but I am not sure if I should proceed with a step outlined by Enthusiast.
The best suggestion for you right now is to run Windows One Care Free Scan.
Reboot your computer and go to the Windows Live Onecare Free Scan
It will say "Get a free PC safety scan"
Make sure you click "Full Service Scan" in the middle of the page and
not the "Try It Now Free" on the right side.
Allow it to download an Active X component.
Choose "Complete Scan" in the window that opens
Do not click on anything else that offers you a free trial or to sign up if you live in the US.
Allow it to scan - it may take quite a while, maybe two hours or so depending on how big your hard drive is and how fragmented your registry and drive are.
Ity will defrag your hard drive and straighten out your registry to a point. It may even resolve your problem, but even if it can't it's worthwhile to do.
Start it, get it to the point it doesn't need input from you, and let it run, possibly overnight.
Make sure you use Internet Explorer and allow it to download its Active X applet and its operational files.
Any help is appreciated.
Thanks in advance
