I am working with a friends Gateway Laptop, XP.

She's had a ton of spyware, malware and a couple of viruses removed by SuperAnti Spyware. I am trying to load HijackThis but her outdated McAfee keeps spotting a suppose virus in HJT.

In trying to remove McAfee, there is no uninstall that I can see. The only thing re Mcafee in "Add/Remove programs is "Uninstall McAfee." Can I go into explore and simply delete all things McAfee? any suggestions?

Much appreciated friends!

You need to stop the services and then try removing from add/remove programs. Might also be helpful to do this in safe mode.
