Question McAfee Site Advisor Removal?
Hi I have removed 'McAfee Site Advisor' using windows & also 'IObit Uninstaller, which seemed fine. Noticed in Programs (x86)/McAfee, SiteAdvisor folder still there. There was an uninstall there which deleted some remains but not others? How best should I get rid of these remnants left? If I try & shred, it says it can't because still in use or some other program using? Firefox or IE are not using this now.

Appreciate your help

Thx

Hi thx for quick response, I have McAfee Antivirus, which I am going to remove when license runs out, so this will be very useful. So at the moment I should be able to remove 'SiteAdvisor without affecting the AV?

I'm not sure you can uninstall the Site Advisor alone, but I wouldn't think so.

I would still get rid of McAfee completely, no matter if it was paid for or not. There are much better alternatives, even free ones like Microsoft Security Essentials or Avira Antivir. McAfee has always been a system resource hog and quite average as an antivirus protection.

OK Cheers perhaps these remains are part of the Mcafee Security Center, within the center it mentions site advisor to install?

Thx again

Why don't you keep all your McAfee-related issues here instead of starting a new thread?
