McAfee uninstall...

Does anyone know where I might find a free McAfee Uninstaller? I'm trying to help someone uninstall McAfee, and it is impossible. They should be ashamed of themselves for doing this to people. I would appreciate some help with this. Thanks....Maggie

McAfee Consumer Product Removal tool

In reply to: McAfee uninstall...

McAfee Consumer Product Removal tool (MCPR.exe) removes all 2005, 2006, and 2007 versions of McAfee consumer products. This option should only be used as an alternative if you cannot remove your McAfee product through the normal Add/Remove Programs.

NOTE: This tool is not compatible with Microsoft Windows 98 or ME.

Maggie, If It's A McAfee Version Earlier Than Those...

..provided in the instructions provided by Donna, (or an corporate Enterprise version) please post back with the EXACT version number of the McAfee program installed.. I should be able to provide you with the complete uninstall instructions.

If you have the 2005, 2006, and 2007 versions of McAfee (RETAIL) consumer products, then the link Donna provided is certainly a good one.

Hope this helps.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
