mcafee uninstall
Tried to uninstall mcafee using add/remove. Computer screen says it is locked because it is in use. Tried password and it didn't work. Has mcafee jacked the computer or will it clear when the uninstall is finished? Thanks.

I find when that happens all that is required is a shutdown and then restart and then attempt the uninstall, if that failes download this its better than add remove and its free http://www.revouninstaller.com/

Shutting down brings the same window back up.

Before you can uninstall McAfee, you have to first shut it down completely. It's a real resource hog, and has all sorts of things running in the background. You have to go into options/preferences and stop all the various services, then do the uninstall.
