  • Question


    Hello. Does anyone know how to get rid off a McAfee service that when I try to get rid of all the files-tells me that "it cannot access the file" and yet...I am not using it anymore-and have removed it from my system???? I ran a full file search and found 17 hidden files...I removed them also-and I still have the red icon with my One Care saying I still have conflicting software from McAFree to remove....any suggestions??? Thanks for any help!

  • does it tell you which files are in conflict?

    can you diable them from starting with windows defender?

    if the files arnt there (deleted) are the regestry entries removed?

    It seems to me if your getting an error cant access it means the file is open so it cant be removed.

    the only way i can think of is to remove all the mcaffee from add and remove programs.

    nortan has 3 diffrent programs in the add and remove programs list to completly remove it.

    show updates?

    try reinstalling macaffee then reinstall it?
