I had a problem with my computer - I formatted the HD at least five times before the problem was fixed - I had McAfee on the HD every time I formatted the HD - when I tried to download McAfee to install on the HD, I was told I had too many copies installed and would have to purchase McAfee - I was also told to uninstall McAfee before I formatted and I wouldn't be charged for the copy. How can I uninstall and be sure McAfee knows I've uninstalled a copy for future installition? Thanks -
It's physically impossible for anything to remain on the hard drive if you format it so there has to be something else at play here. Other partitions, external drives or whatever? Or it wasn't really formatted.
The MCPR removal tool will remove all traces of McAfee home products (only) and is linked in my signature.
There are certain McAfee elements that can't be removed by MCPR, anything older than 2005 for instance & any of the other McAfee products such as Enterprise or Small Business products. Also if it, once finished, shows "Cleaning Incomplete" it's best to reboot and re-run it.
