I am having problems getting McAfee installed.  I have purchased the product online,  installed it,  then got an error msg:

"Error 1904.Module C:\Program Files\McAfee\McAfeeVirusScan\VscOffice.dll failed to register.  HRESULT - 2147023782"

After seeing that,  i tried to be a genius and uninstall and try again,  but now i can't unistall it.  I get this msg:

"Error 1721.  There is a problem with this Windows Installer package.  A program required for this install to complete could not be run. "

Any help would be much appreciated.

You may try Windows Installer Cleanup utility and remove McAfee completely.
