    I have a question, I uninstalled McAfee Virus Scan, to switch to another virus scan/firewall package. After completing the uninstall of McAfee I am left with a McAfee file (195MB) made up of 3 smaller files, McAfee Office (191MB), McAfee Shared Components (3.92MB) & Virus Scan (1.07Kb). Any ideas if it is possible and safe to get rid of this stuff and also how to do I accomplish this? Thanks for any help.

    Try renaming the files/folders; if no problems result just delete them later.

    But for some versions of McAfee you might find "manual" uninstall directions on their site -- if you can navigate it.
