Re: removing mcafee from computer

,

               Did you first remove from your Control Panel > Programs and Features > Restart. Before utilizing the McAfee (MCPR) Tool?  Also check in your Control Panel/Programs and Features to see if by chance you have (McAfee Security Scan Plus) inadvertently installed. If so remove it as it is basically a Marketing tool.

I might add also, that somehow this thread was moved to 'Spanish Consumer Suppport' when meant to move to Consumer > General Discussion > Discussions?

I've sent a message to have this moved from this area.

it's possible you used an old MCPR.  It's constantly updated so always download a fresh one:

If still an issue contact Technical Support, it's free of charge. Consumer Technical Support (alter Country @ top right as needed)
