what is your error? some viruii will prevent anti-virus from installing. what anti-virus pkg and version are you now trying to install? i would download stinger.exe from onto a floppy and scan my system in safe mode just to make sure...otherwise i would start tracking down the error message(s) i am getting at the mfg website. let me guess: you are installing nav and live update won't run...

I've had this happen before. Boot into safe mode and reinstall mcafee, then go back into safe mode and rip it out.

You have to go into the registery and remove what McAfee left.
