    I removed mcafee using add/remove programs under the control panel. although i got the message that the uninstall was successful, there are still some things in the start.ini referring to this program. should i remove these using regedit. also will it help in getting rid of a conflict i'm having with other programs already on my computer?

    If you are not real familiar with the registry, I suggest you download RegEditPlus.. a freeware program which provides the same service as windows regedit, but provides backup in case you make an error.
    Then, in registry click 'C' and Find, enter any references to McAfee and use the delete button at the extreme top of panel on any that are found.

    sorry for the delay but was having some computer problems and couldn't get access to the internet.
    i had already edited the registry without problems. will keep your information handy for any further problems though.
