    Ok....this is the third thread regarding McAfee causing problems...so don't feel bad.

    Completely uninstall McAfee, and use a program like RegSeeker or CCleaner to completely clean the registry.

    So, that probably means it's not Mcafee.
    Some questions come to mind :
    1)is this a new pc ?
    2)what kind of harddrive is it ? *PATA(IDE), SATA, SATA II*
    3)have you installed all possible needed drivers ?

    Morph and Fiend: Just so you know im not on drugs read a little here about mcafee.

    And the Remove program is not enough. Mcafee is very invasive. That reg cleaner saved this guys bacon. Mcafee 10 also has a nasty habit of running for a short time then messing things up again. 1000's of posts over the same problems and this thing came out in August and it's still broken.

    Dear lord...we'd all turn to dust reading up on McAfee's demise at getting their code right!!

    Last report from Maximum PC on AV software tests gave McAfee the lowest rating for AV apps ever given by them.

    That's why I always suggest using a great registry cleaner to mop up after ANY uninstall of a product. You can even use RegSeeker to find specific keys related to a product by using the Search function. That program has saved a lot of people's bacon...particularly when it comes to removing trojan viruses. Always nice to remove registry entries so apps don't have a chance to launch at startup.
