    I would LOVE to remove Mcaffee completely from my computer, but somehow it won't let me. Does it have a "will to live" or what??? Anyone have any suggestions?

    Does it just fail when using the add/remove programs tool?

    It just says that I have to close it before I can delete it, but it's always running somehow. I've tried every way I can think of to shut it down; ctrl,alt,del etc. but nothing works..... very frustrating[:(!]

    Did you try booting in safe mode?
