Have you tried the F8 / Last Known Good Configuration option?  I would think that would keep McAfee from trying to start and then you can boot and uninstall it.

did Mcafee detect any virus after installing so the system can't boot again...?
try to locate the winlogon.exe files in the c:\windows\system32
some viruses infect the winlogon.exe so the antivirs detete it, and the system can't boot agian
you can locate a backup copy of this file on the windows cd

I have already uninstalled Mcafee but that didnt do anything, Ill try the Winlogon.exe option when i get home
hi, just wondering if you gave wrong points? your last comment mentioned you already tried uninstalling mcafee but it didnt work, did you accept my answer by accident?  if so, tell a mod to assign to the right person.  thanks
