I'm using McAfee Firwall 4.0. I recently installed SP2 for XP Pro and ran into a lot of problems with my local network connection. I pulled the McAfee firewall, but wonder if it really is uninstalled. I ran their registry program to empty the registry of McAfee references. I'm still having a lot of local network problems.
I just did a file search and found a McA menu item, a few directories, and a number of files. I tried run regedit and entered mcafee as a search argument and got probably a thousand hits, but the 6 or so I examined did not have mcafee in their keys or values. What's up with regedit? What do I need to do to remove the remainder of programs and files? See next paragraph.
Let me mention that when I applied the scheme provided by McA to remove their product, I mistakenly ran their registry removal program out of order. I was supposed to uninstall first, then run it. I did the opposite, and then ran the reg removal program a second time after realizing what I did wrong.
The McA firewall program no longer exists under Add/Remove programs in the control panel.
