Which other security software did you have problems removing?
At this point, try running MCPR (see my signature), rebooting the PC and then try again.
Lavasoft Adaware 2007
There seems to be a bug in Ad-Aware 2007, causing it not to be removable in the normal way after a machine has been updated to IE7.
Lavasoft have put up some removal instructions:
Ran MCPR. Also tried the steps recommended on the Lavasoft support forum (I had visited this site previously and tried most of the rcommendations). I still am unable to get McAfee downloaded. The same error message appears. I am ready to look for other security programs.
I just did a search for 'mcpmain.inf'. Most search results were a torrent site.
Is it possible that there is some malware on your computer that prevents the reinstallation of McAfee ? You could try an online scan with Kaspersky, Bitdefender. For spyware, SAS and MBAM (free), possibly scan in safe mode ?
You could also try the Revo uninstaller to remove leftovers from Lavasoft and other software.
