Mcafee was using 50% cpu and running hard drive all the time making computer slow. I could not stop Mcafee using msconfig so I uninstalled it. Now there is no network connection and I cannot create a new one. The Mcafee Internediate miniports are still listed in Device Manager each has an ! mark on them. I cannot remove them so I disabled them. Still cannot create network connection. Have not tried System Restore, would like to fix problem without putting Mcafee back on.

Well, the only thing I had not done was delete and reinstall the network card. So I did that and it removed the Mcafee miniports and the network connection came back.
All fixed.
