Also tried with HijackThis, no result :huh:

 

remove McAfee's registry related through regedit but still appear in the services. WinPatrol also can't do anything.

 

any ideas ?

Read somewhere that you can remove it by disabling it in services and then removing it with HijackThis under ''delete an NT service' tool'' (misc tools section)

as I mentioned above,

 

if disable it > not listed in HijackThis NT services

 

if manual / automatic > listed but tried to fix then rescan with HJT, it still there not removed/deleted.

Let me get this clear abu. You have gone into services via services.msc and disabled it.

 

Then you go into HJT misc tools and copy it in to delete but you cannot do it?

I meant copy and paste the service name exactly as it said in the hjt scan into the space provided.

 

Should I do a screenshot, would it help?

 

Are you on xp?

What about copying the name in anyway and seeing what happens when you delete it as service in HJT?

Try using the 30 day trail of Revo Uninstaller pro. It's got a force uninstall feature, so maybe that might help you get rid of the pesky leftovers.

The easiest way to to delete a service that is no longer needed is to use autoruns that can be downloaded autoruns here. If you have xp run it in an admin account. If you have vista or win7 right click and run as administrator. Then, click on the services tab and see if you can find the Mcafee service. Then just delete it. I used it to delete a service that a2 anti-malware free left behind when I uninstalled it.

I'm not sure how far autoruns goes (I'm assuming 'delete' remove the service exe / dll?, and maybe the Control Set entry?), but I'll wager it doesn't properly uninstall the service. There will probably be other other registry entries and files left hanging around. It may suffice as a fall-back but it's probably not the tidiest way to go.

 

That aside, everyone should use autoruns anyway ... it's just one of those must-haves ;)

Depending of which version of McAfee you are using there is an uninstaller you can download from McAfee because the default uninstaller doesn't always work as it should do, Google it. ;)
