    Default Uninstalling McAfee Products

    To uninstall McAfee products from your pc:

    Log onto Windows using an account with admin privileges.
    First remove McAfee product via Windows Add/Remove Progams in Control Panel or via uninstaller in Start, All Programs, McAfee, Uninstall and list of your McAfee products uninstallers appears.
    But you're not done yet. That doesn't get everything for that product uninstalled.

    Next go to the McAfee Support site :

    http://www.mcafeehelp.com/selectSupp...ution=1024x768

    Click the Tech Support link, enter your product from the pull down list. The screens will guide you to step-by-step instructions & product-specific "removal tools" for more complete uninstall.
    I've used them successfully for VirusScan, Privacy Service and SpamKiller with no problems on still-running McAfee Firewall.
    The tools remove the "leftovers" in the Windows Registry, too.

    If problems should occur, join the McAfee user forum (free) and seek further assistance your particular system configuration may require.

    Hope this helps.

    Default Sequence of Mcafee uninstalls

    I failed to mention you must disable & uninstall the individual products like Privacy Service, Spamkiller, and VirusScan first. Then uninstall the firewall (be sure to disable it first). Uninstall the Security Center last. Hope this helps.
