I recently got rid of my mcafee internet security software and went to Norton. Although there is no part of the mcafee software listed on my computer, both at start up and when starting Outlook, my computer prompts an error message that a mcafee "dll" library file is missing.

Although I can just click "ok" to bypass the error message, I am wondering if there is a way to remove the command that is telling my computer to look for these dll files and remove the annoying error prompt. Any ideas?

If I'm not wrong, the start-up entry for mcafee didnt get deleted properly.

Download HijackThis from here. Make a new folder for the program and then open it, click Scan. When it finishes scanning, do no remove anything but instead save the log and post it here.

From the above log, we'll be able to remove the startup entry and that annoying box won't come up as the computer starts.

This is for Outlook 2002 and may work with 2000 also

Open outlook

Go to Tools -> Options -> "Other" Tab -> Advanced Options -> Add-In Manager

You should see something there that references McAfee - Uncheck that and click "Ok" then click "Ok" again.

If it is not there, look in Comm Add-Ins, although I am not sure about the Comm Add ins at all.

jameso3321,

Your suggestion has done the trick! :) I appreciate the help. I haven't restarted my computer yet to see if I am getting the mcafee error message at start up but it is definitely off the Outlook program. I'll restart my computer now and see if it's still at start up. If so, I'll reply back.

Thanks again,

Seminoletide

NOK1,

I attempted to download the Hijack program you spoke of but my computer doesn't recognize the download program format. It is asking me what program to use to open the zip file. What program is it in?

As I indicated in the last message, jameso321's suggestion on removing the Outlook message worked but I still have the annoying message at computer startup.

Thanks for your continued help with this.

Sorry about the long period of time before I replied - I was on vacation.

Anyways, what you shall need to fix in hijack this is to make sure that all folders and internet explorer windows are closed, and then place a check by the following entry and then click on "Fix"

O2 - BHO: McAfee Privacy Service - {cc4b2ee5-4803-11d7-8a38-00b0d0c6b814} - C:\PROGRAM FILES\MCAFEE\MCAFEE PRIVACY SERVICE\GDIEHELP.DLL (file missing)

Reboot

The problem should be gone by now.
