I have a dell latitude z, running windows 7, that was converted from mcafee to vipre.  If mcafee was removed from the add/remove programs list, and then rebooted and then vipre was installed, could that possibly cause this.  Would a removal tool for mcafee help after the fact, or is it too late for that.  Please help.  Please let me know.

If you uninstalled McAfee via Add/Remove Programs then the uninstall shouldn't be causing you any problems.

You could just hit the recovery point for a time prior to the uninstall if you want to get back to where you were.

What does it mean to be "Always On"?

Is your cloud always on? With an Always On cloud you won't have to worry about downtime for maintenance or software application code updates, ensuring that your bottom line isn't affected.

PPIHXM,
Simply using the Control Pane --> Add/Remove Programs is seldom a 'clean' uninstall and almost never with an application as convoluted as the various AV "Suites".

After using the MCPR recommended above, you should download www.ccleaner.com and use the "Registry" function to remove all the residue that will be left over from McAfee.

You will be asked if you want to 'Back Up' your current registry before making any changes and you should select 'Yes'.

Just run it now.
It is designed for use AFTER the normal uninstallation.

By "it", I mean the McAfee Consumer Product Removal Tool mentioned by "edbedb".
