    I have XP pro. In the add/remove programs menu, Visual Basic 6.0 is listed as taking up 16 g of disk space. When I click on remove, a menu pops up asking me if I would like to install Mediaone+. I obviously don't, so I click cancel. This then cancels the uninstallation as well.

    Recently, I downloaded McAfee Viruscan 7.1 from my school network. When trying to install that, the same menu pops up asking me if I want to install mediaone+. When I click cancel, it cancels the installation of VS 7.1 as well.

    I don't know what this is. I ran adaware and Spybot S&D, assuming that it was spyware, but the problem still exists. I even ran regedit.exe and deleted all instances of "Mediaone+". Still nothing.

    I even went through with the mediaone+ installation, just to see what would happen. It installed the program as usual, but the pop up menu still remained when trying to install McAfee and while trying to uninstall VB.

    Please help me. Thanks,

    -Joe

    I downloaded the utility. Mediaone+ doesn't show up, even when it is installed, so I can't remove it.

    Is this a virus? I'll go to the mediaone site and ask them, but that is just so weird. What would viruscan and visual basic have in common that would trigger this?

    No. I'm not getting any error message. The only problem that I'm having is when I try to install McAfee Viruscan 7.1, a menu box pops up and asks me if I would like to install mediaone+. If I say yes, it installs mediaone. If I say no, it cancels the setup. I can't get McAfee on my computer, and that's really all I care about.

    If you have a mediaone+ folder in your program files,open it and look for an uninstaller.If that doesn't work,let the mediaone+ installation continue to completion then try the The Windows Installer CleanUp Utility again

    Mediaone+ is an MP3 player. Do a Google or Yahoo search for more info.
