not sure where this should be so move to appropriate forum
installed mcafee when i got sky broadband, - uninstalled today, then did a system restore afterwards.
Tying to reinstall mcafee but i keep getting errors, i cant either instal it or remove it
If i reboot i get a message like ;one or more components missing' or something like that
how do i get rid of mcafee's r get it back on my system?
ive tried removing under 'safe mode' but still no luck

Can you not do a system restore back to today? Normally it would create a restore point as when you started to uninstall it?~ Never, ever, argue with an idiot. They'll drag you down to their level and beat you with experience ~

You need to do a manual uninstall so you can use some extra tools provided by mcafee to get rid of there software if the software unistall/install failed in someway or other... Check out the following for info on how to do it manually! http://forums.mcafeehelp.com/viewtopic.php?p=318352Арте́льный горшо́к гу́ще кипи́т. (Moral: Working as a team produces better results!)

Had this problem when i first installed Macafee. The problem occurs when you have had previous programmes at any time on your PC i will give you the 3 main culprits that causse the problem.
Norton Anti Virus
Spybot Search and Destroy
You Must remove the bottom 2 through ADD/REMOVE
And the Norton one once uninstalled you need to go to the symantec website and download their uninstall tool.
This will remove all references of Norton on your PC, Then install Macafee and reinstall SpyBot and Adaware.
Dont know if this will help but had the same problem when i started and this procedure sorted it out, Glad i did though cos so far i am impressed with Macafee.
