PROBLEM REMOVING McAFEE VIRUS PROTECTION FROM MY LAPTOP.
I'm seeking insights from those of you who may have had my problem with McAfee Security Program. I wanted to change because it consumes so much RAM memory in startup that my computer takes a long time to finally be able to function. Plus, I updated for the 1st time after purchasing my new AMD Turion 64 Laptop with Windows XP with the cheapest protection offered and I keep getting the popup saying that I need to renew my subscription. I decided to go with the protection that is offered with my SBC Global service which is provided as part of my service.
So, I had a computer tech. come and tune up both my laptop and my wife's console computer and then remove my McAfee program so that the other could be installed. PROBLEM!!!: He COULD NOT REMOVE all of the McAfee installation by use of the normal removeal tool, going into DOS, and even using a special tool that he had on his USB memory stick. He removed enough of it so that the other program could be installed BUT I still have constant popups from McAfee stating that my computer is not protected and to scan for repair, etc. CAN ANYBODY TELL ME how I can get the rest of that program off my computer? Please? I have tried several times since then to do it myself and once I commit to pressing the "remove it" button, the popup that says that removal is "in progress" gets locked in and the only way I can get rid of it is to kill my computer in place. I can't even shut my laptop down or reboot it the normal way.
THANKS FOR YOUR INPUT.
