Problem with McAfee Active Shield

  1. Hi all and thanks for looking.

    I've been running McAfee anti virus quite happily until I had a chance to upgrade. I now get an error message at start up saying "Some components of Active Shield are either missing or might not have been installed properly. Please re-install Active Shield."

    I have tried to delete McAfee and start again, but for some reason it won't delete all of it and I seem to be in limbo. I'd love to get rid of McAfee altogether and try something else but in the short term to try and fix the error.

    I'm not terribly computer literate but here are the stats

    It's a Dell computer with windows XP

    McAfee Anti Virus version 9

    I appreciate you looking and if someone can help I'd be very grateful.
