I think the link for the MCPR tool is here: How to uninstall or re-install supported McAfee products using the Consumer Products Removal tool

As a McAfee survivor, I'll chip in to say that one sometimes needs to run it twice and (in stubborn cases) in Windows Safe Mode, in order to get all the bits and pieces.

Thanks. At this point, I only have Trend Micro to remove. I did not try to install McAfee. I am going to try uninstalling Trend Micro vs a clean Windows Install.

Yep, a nuke and pave should give you that nice, clean, fresh feeling to start anew.

Let us know how it goes.
