Totally Deleting Old Versions of McAfee VirusScan & Security

by Al Diaz / February 2, 2006 4:01 AM PST

My old computer runs on Windows ME. Each time I attempt to install the latest version of McAfee VirusScan, I get an error that vestiges of an old version of McAfee VirusScan and Security must be deleted. I have used the VirusScan utility that is supposed to remove old versions of VirusScan and tried all other ways I know of to delete old versions of VirusScan from this computer. Perhaps it is something in my computer's registry. How can I get rid of all vestiges of old versions of McAfee VirusScan and Security that may be lurking in my computer?
