    I uninstalled McAfee 7.0 Pro...and now I can't access my outlook, my drives and some of my other programs are missing. What can be up with this? I open Windows Explorer and...BANG...Blue Scream of Death and then restart. One big Microsoft Mobius Loop.

    I'm running a Dell PIII 450 w/320 megs of ram on Win 98SE. I have 2 HDs C; is the main one with 8 gigs and D; is the one I use for all my files and it's a 80gig. We're running Win 2000 server here.

    Also my drives were not shared so I can't transfer my files or even see em.

    Everything was hunky dorey until I uninstalled that packin' program...RRRRRRR.

    Cheers

    Does the blue screen give an error message?

    How did you go about uninstalling McAfee? Via add/remove programs?

    I never copied down the error message...but it won't be hard to get...and yes via add /remove. I can't get that error message just right yet...I'm in a queue up to talk with a Live McAfee Tech.

    Cheers

    Well....that was a waste of time. I had to go to my Regedit and find all McAfee associated files. But when it came time to a search of a certian file - actually not sure if it was a file...long string of numbers with a bracket around it - it froze. It freezes anytime I do anything associated with the drives.

    Any other ideas other than flatten?

    Cheers
