INSTALLER FAILED, KEEPS TRYING TO INSTALL

Gee thanks, Mcafee.  Your trial installer keeps failing to install, even after I followed the instructions to run the remover and preparation utilities.  Now though, every time I boot my computer it tries to install Mcafee again and bogs down my computer.  I've removed the installers, run the MCPR utility, checked Add/Remove programs for anything hanging on, even made sure that it wasn't in windows' start up apps list, but this zombie-ware just won't go away.  PLEASE JUST MAKE IT STOP!

Best you call support they will sort this out I hope. They may need to access your PC trust them they have done that several times for me.
