  1. I have Windows Xp Sp2 media center '05 edition, and i am having huge problems with Mcafee. I cant seem to get it off my comp. The virus scan keeps coming back everytime i turn on my computer even though i keep trying remove it from my computer. Does anyone have any ideas how i can get rid of this pest?

    1. Download the removal tool from:

    http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe


    2. Click Save and save the file to any folder on your computer.
    3. Navigate to the folder where the file is saved.
    4. Make sure all McAfee windows are closed.
    5. Double-click MCPR.EXE to run the removal tool.

    Note: Windows Vista users must right-click MCPR.EXE and select Run as Administrator.


    6. Restart your computer after receiving the message CleanUp Successful.


    All McAfee products are now removed from your computer.
