VirusScan "competing program" problems

Runnning an older AMD processor (700MHz) with 256 RAM and XP - sp3. (Don't laugh, it's all I need for now). Have not updated since VirusScan V-10; purchased V-13 on-line but cannot install because the installer finds a competing product "eXtendia antivirus AVK pro". This program was on the machine for a short time while I worked through a "homepage hijacking" but was removed almost immediately. Every version of McAfee since has had the same problem - hence remaining with V-10. It is not on the add/remove program listing. Virtual Tech. finds no problems and the only references to this program I find using "search" are those informing me that McAfee can't install because of it.

I approach most reconfig operations with fear and trembling - any help, thoughts or recommendations would be highly appreciated.

RE: VirusScan "competing program" problems



Could you use the Revo uninstaller ?

I have no experience with it, though.

Revo uninstaller

Down loaded Revo - looks great but can't find the AVK antivirus. Found a couple of references in the registry and deleted them but still no luck with McAfee installation. There has to be something left in the registry but I'm out of my depth here. I may have to go back to using AVK at this rate.

Thanks
