A belated thank you for this - it did the trick wonderfully well; only issue
was that I needed a pair of eyes since the first screen didn't speak at all.
However, once these were available, I was relieved to say "bye bye" to
McAfee!

I've kept the download...just in case...

You can get a free McAfee removal tool from here:

Hi,

Recently, I've had my Windows 7 laptop rebuilt after a melt-down and McAfee
was installed on it.  As I don't want it, I uninstalled it using "Programs
and Features" and, as far as I can remember, all components were duly
uninstalled - certainly, no McAfee software shows up either in the list of
installed programs in "All Programs" or in Programs and Features.  However,
today, I've discovered that three components are running (McShield, McFire
and a validation process (can't remember it's named)) and I cannot get rid
of them no matter what I've tried!

I can't stop any of the processes from the process list, I can't disable or
turn them off from starting at boot-up via either msconfig or services.msc
and, to date, I haven't been able to find anything relevant when searching
via Google!  

Does anyone know, please, how I can get rid of this unwanted software?

Thanks for any help.

Richard Bartholomew
