Friend bought new Dell Studio XPS 8100. After getting it setup for him, my first order of business was to remove Mcafee and clean the system which I did. However, there is one Mcafee icon that I have not found a way to remove and that's the mcagent.exe in the Notification Area Icons.Can't find any reference to it in the registry or any where on the hard drive other than the customize icons in the Notification Area. Have ran the Mcafee cleaners and everything else I could find but it is still there.

Been looking at that link for a couple hours. Kind of unsure as I can't find any documentation of anyone that actually got it to work.

Being an XP guy, I was a little leary of experimenting with Win 7 but I gave up, set a restore point and went with TonyReba's link suggestion. It worked! Did have to reset personal preferences for the remaining icons.
