It's physically impossible for anything to remain on the hard drive if you format it so there has to be something else at play here. Other partitions, external drives or whatever?
Or it wasn't really formatted.
The MCPR removal tool will remove all traces of McAfee home products (only) and is linked in my signature.
You have to reboot once it's finished.
I used MCPR and it does not remove ALL traces of McAfee. after several reboots, I ran Registry First Aid Search function and it found 102 McAfee entries in the registry.
There are certain McAfee elements that can't be removed by MCPR, anything older than 2005 for instance & any of the other McAfee products such as Enterprise or Small Business products.
Also if it, once finished, shows "Cleaning Incomplete" it's best to reboot and re-run it.
