@Hi All -
I hope this is the correct area for my problem as below.
My almost new Acer that was pre installed with windows 8 also included McAfee as an "Add-On".
I have almost removed almost all traces, but I can not remove these last 3 items that are not required .....
McAfee Application Installer Cleanup (004249141237703) , McAfee Firewall Core Service and McAfee Validation Trust Protection Service
Thanks to all for any advice .........
>> Let us know if that does not work. << Thanks for the "logical answer" but that is how I removed the basic program ....
It will not work, as I have attempted it several times, all without a "further" result.
Removal of the basic program was done in several minutes, but these are "extras" I think.
They only show in Services and rate a small mention via regedit -
Thank You and Please, Any other ideas ??
Then you should remove the entries under:
All the entries related to McAfee.
Please, let me know if that works. Make sure you restart the machine after deleting the keys from registry.
Any clues after HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services ............
and HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet ?? .............
I may need new glasses, but nothing related seems to be listed ??
From above, should I need to enable this listed item again to help me find something ??
>> I managed to "disable" McAfee Application Installer Cleanup (004249141237703) <<
Sorry for being a pain .
Do you have this key?
Try to delete it if you have it
About to reboot and see if this is OK -
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\CurrentControlSet\Services\mfevtp << Was no problem.
HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SYSTEM\ControlSet001\Services\mfevtp - Threw an error back to me (See below)
Can not Delete mfevtp: Error while deleting key.
