THIS IS A 98SE BOX.. I'm trying to install Mcafee on a customers machine (Mcafee 7.1) and I continuosly get this message "Please wait while the initialization process checks for and uninstalls older product versions." The installation process is automatically checking for and uninstalling older product versions that may be in conflict with mcafee internet security suite 7.1 components. you may require a restart of your computer to complete the installation and configuration.  then there is a restart button under the Paragraph.

 When you press the restart button it just restarts the machine and pops up with the same screen over and over. I did notice that there used to be a vesion of panda AV on the machine that would not unistall completely, i had to remove all traces of the word PANDA from the reg just to remove it from the ADD/REMOVE programs list. I've tried everything i know, I'm quite sure it's related to panda. Does anyone know if there is a tool like RNAV out there for panda software.
