I had a trial version of McAfee installed on my HP PC whn I got it this month. I used the program and features to uninstall it. I then used the McAfee removal kit. Even after all that I still have McAfee entries in my registry which I cannot remove. I tried manually to delete them (even tried Safe Mode) but when I try delting the entries I get error message that tey cannot be deleted. I even tried changing the permissions but the changes could not be saved.
Please tell me how to get rif of the registry entries for McAfee.
hum - You posted in the Apple Mac group - I'll see if I can move your thread.
I am fairly sure this hive is maintained by the OS itself, so probably best to leave it well alone.
If you can tell me howto move it I would be happy to do it or maybe I should just start a new post in the right area. As far as leaving it alone I eally don't want to do that when they are bobviously not needed.
Somehow these registry keys were added by McAfee and I should be able to delete them. Please tell me how rto delete rather than telling me just leave them.
PS: I was told this was in posted in Apple Mac Mac Grouop but I don't see that so please point me to the PC group
I already moved the thread. I don't believe those keys were added by McAfee, I think the Windows installer adds them. I don't believe you can delete them, or that you should delete them, and can find nothing on the interent to indicate it's even possible to delete them, so unless someone else can help you, there is no solution.
I presume its a Win 8.1 PC. Whether an attempt to install McAfee Central was made or was it Pre-installed on your PC. McAfee Central is the Metro version of McAfee Security Products.
You might try renaming the registry entry and try deleting it..!
Renaming was also not allowed and yes it is a 8.1 installation.
Since this is a McAfee registry key you would think somebody at McAfee would know how to delete it since they added it
