          You should uninstall it in the normal manner - Control Panel > Porgrams > Uninstall a Programs, then run the MCPR removal tool listed under Useful Links at top of this page and reboot.


          The software is always there at McAfee's website for you to re-download.


          To return to XP from Vista you are going to have to format the hard drive anyway so everything is going to be wiped clean.


          Don't forget to update your Windows after a new installation and install such things as Adobe Flash/Shockwave and Java....it's a very long job.
