I want to remove my McAfee to get rid of all of the wireless network protection portion of Total Protection package and reload without wirelss network protection. This is the final laptop in my house to have this process completed. The first one that I have had a problem doing. When I go to add/remove program and select change/remove to remove wirelss network portion, I get the message that I cannot perform this without exiting the McAfee program first which I can find no way to do. I have spent 6 hours today trying to figure this out and searching the communty forums. HELP!
3. Launch Windows Explorer and delete all McAfee files in "Program Files" but especially in "C:\Document and Settings\<user>\Application Data" and "C:\Document and Settings\All Users\Application Data". You have to set Windows Explorer to show all hidden files and folders (Tools > Folder Options > View tab). Just delete the McAfee folders even if they are empty in all the "Application Data" folders. Can be more than one! In Vista: C:\Program Files, C:\ProgramData and C:\Users\yourname\AppData\Roaming
4. Reboot and redownload/reinstall your McAfee products directly from your account at the McAfee web site, not from any CD that you may have.
