    McAfee Uninstalled But It Still Appears In Windows Security Center

    Peter M
      McAfee's uninstalled but it still appears in Windows Security Center, even after running the MCPR removal tool and a reboot.

      1. From the Taskbar, click Start
      2. Click Run
      3. Type command
      4. Click OK
      5. A window with a black background appears
      6. Type net stop winmgmt
      7. Press the Enter key
      8. Type CD\
      9. Press the Enter key on your keyboard
      10. Type cd %windir%\system32\wbem
      11. Press the Enterkey
      12. Type ren repository repository.old
      13. Press the Enter key
      14. Type net start winmgmt
      15. Press the Enter key

      In XP you must be signed in as an Administrator and in case of Vista run the command prompt as the administrator.
