mcafee security came with my pc as a trial. i don't like mcafee and don't
want mcafee, how do i totally remove it? if i try to remove it using add &
remove i end up receiving error messages in outlook. i have tried contacting
mcafee but can't even get them to reply (just 1 reason why i don't like
mcafee)

Before uninstalling McAfee, ensure that it is set to NOT check incoming and
outgoing mail.. reboot, then proceed with the removal again..

On top of what Mike suggested, Make sure that it is not set to run in any
form at startup. Check MSconfig (Startup tab).
You also may want to touch base w/your pc mfgr.
