It can't be run in that manner (as a task)...how are you trying to run it and on what operating system and what product?
You download MCPR in the normal manner from the link under Useful Links above, right-click and unblock under Properties if necessary, and click "Run" and off it goes.
You should be signed in as a User with Administrative rights also.
It can also be run in Safe Mode.
You must reboot after running it.
The account I am using has administrator privelages. I started MCPR from the desktop icon and it fails . If it is resarted a second time I need to delete the task in the task scheduler. Even then it fails with the error I listed in my last post. This is after identifying a number of items that need to be deleted.
Make sure it's the latest version of MCPR that you have downloaded and that the applications you are trying to remove are all home versions of McAfee software as MCPR is no use for Enterprise products or ToPS for example. Also the products have to be 2005 or later and you can't run it on Windows 98 or Me.
Try running it in Safe Mode. It will throw up errors but should work with a reboot when finished to remove the final remnants.
If not then there is a very long and laborious registry removal process which I would have to go and find as I haven't posted it for ages.
I found the long method.
If that doesn't work then you'll have to try the long way or contact Technical Support Chat.
Enable Windows Firewall while you are unprotected by McAfee.
The regedit procedure can be done offline anyway.
Go to Start/Run and enter regedit and click OK.
A page should open with the top left hand corner looking like this:
if for some reason it's expanded, collapse it and then highlight My Computer (Computer in Vista/Windows 7).
Go to File tab and click "Export" and send all of the registry to your desktop. This is in case something goes wrong. It can then be rebuilt by simply right-clicking that desktop item and selecting Merge.
Now click the Edit tab and then "Find". Enter "McAfee" (minus the "") then click "Find next" (or hit the enter key).
Whatever is found, right-click and delete.
Hit your F3 key for the next instance and keep going until all entries are gone.
If one says it can't be deleted this is where it gets complicated. You have to then find which key on the left column pertains to it and right-click/Properties/Permissions and give yourself permission.
It is the latest downloaded from Mcafee this morning. I will try safe mode if you would list the registry edits, that is my last thing without a system restore which I really don't want to do!
See my previous post but I would contact Technical Support Chat first before trying the hard way..under Useful Links above.
