what version of McAfee are you installing?
what is the exact error message that you receive when trying to reinstall McAfee?
try to run the removal tool of McAfee first.
Launch Windows Explorer and delete all McAfee files in "Program Files" but especially in "C:\Document and Settings\<user>\Application Data" You have to set Windows Explorer to show all hidden files and folders (Tools > Folder Options > View tab). Just delete the McAfee folders even if they are empty in all the "Application Data" folders. Can be more than one.
after doing the said steps, try to reinstall McAfee Again.
post back if what happens....
I'll have to check to see what version it is when I get home from work, but it's whatever the latest version is that's on the McAfee website.
Unfortunately, there's nothing to uninstall because there's nothing installed (since I had to reload XP). I'll doublecheck though to make sure. Thanks.
Plastic, you were right. There were some other McAfee files on my PC. I deleted them and reinstalled the Virus Protection program, and it installed fine this time.
I really appreciate your help!
thanks for posting back..glad to help:)
