I can not connect to internet, McAfee firewall wont turn on and when it does, it turns off 2 seconds after you hit the toggle switch for on/off.
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks!

Tap F8 key on boot ...select safe mode with networking and then run this removal tool

Reboot the computer in normal mode and then install mcafee again.

Hey this worked great. I still could not get connectivity but I did use the tool from a usb drive in safemode and it worked good. I also removed all appdata/temp folders to make sure it was totally uninstalled.

Thanks for the Help Ded9!
