    :confused: :confused: Hey-
    I sure hope I not stepping on any body parts but could someone help me clear my machine of Mcafee? I'v uninstalled; deleted files; encryped files; rar'ed files and used several "erasers" and "shredders". Of course I'v terminated the "processes" they ALWAYS return. I'm using AVG 7.5 to protect my machine but I do not want such a memory hog and tenatious program a McAfee.

    TIA
