 Remove McAfee from W 8.1
After performing a recovery, I used the McAfee removal tool. However there are elements remaining. How do I remove them? No entries in "Uninstall Program's".

On the odd occasion I factory reset my Win 7 laptop, I run the MCPR.exe twice, rebooting after each and that usually removes all of it so that I am able to install Norton Security.

If there was anything of McAfee left, Norton wouldn't install.

I find FreeFixer a useful program for cleaning out bits and pieces as well. - http://www.freefixer.com/
