    I can't delete mcAfee... ever since I updated to Xp Pro my virus scan hasn't worked. I did everything the McAfee website said to do and I still can't get it off...


    Has anyone else had any problems with Mcafee and Xp?

    What did you update from? MS-DOS based (98/ME)?
    If so, you should reinstall the software.
    MS-DOS and NT Windows Operate differently. It's best to uninstall it and try installing it again.

    I updated from 98. I will try what you suggested.

    Thank you for your help.

    Even though it's a bit more of a pain, it's best to do a clean install when you're upgrading your OS. Especially when switching from 98/ME to NT/2K/XP.
    Otherwise you can get stuck with leftover programs that don't want to operate correctly under the new NT-based environment.
