Vista upgrade fails with "uninstall McAfee internet security suite"
Posted on 2009-05-05
Hello, I am trying to upgrade my XP pro to Vista.
It fails at the point where it runs a compatibility check with the following message:
uninstall McAfee internet security suite.
I have already done so, I have also removed every reference I can find in the registry, I have removed any folders in documents and settings and program files but still the same error is given. It is as if the vista installation process is remembering a reference to McAfee when I first attempted the install and although I have now cleaned the registry the vista thinks it is still there which means it must be using a log file or something from the first attempt.
How can I find the temp install files to delete them so that it has a chance of a clean install. Any help gratefully appreciated.
