Need Help! Just bought my new Kaspersky Internet Anti-Virus Software. I uninstalled Mcafee and thought that would do the job. But I keep getting prompt to delete a file named "Mcafee Anti-Virus File System Filter Driver" before I can continue install. I've looked everywhere on my computer I could think of, but can't find this file to delete. It's obviously holding me up from downloading my new Kaspersky software. Has anyone encountered this or know what I have to do to get rid of this existing Mcafee file. Thanks Cartero :dash1:

Hello,

 

Follow Firestorm's suggestion but maybe you could also run

VSCleanupTool.exe (McAfee tool) that should remove all eventual leftovers.

I used it myself on friend's system and it did a good job ....

So I'm having this same problem...I was unsure about hooking the computer back up to the internet with NO protection at all...Is there a way to get ride of this Mcafee stuff with out going online? I don't understand why when I search for the program it doesn't come up for me to delete it... :angry:

Save the files to a USB and use that to transfer to another computer.

Providing you have a firewall running, you should be fine to connect for a few minutes on the internet.
