Try revouninstaller. It will uninstall the app completedly. It will start the mcaffee uninstall procedure but when it says to reboot. Say NO. After that the revo will search for all the registry entries and files, all the leftovers, and it will remove or delete them all. All without rebooting. It maybe tell you to reboot if there are lock files by windows but you dont have to do it.

Hope it helps.

sdat updates you scan engine and definitions (dat files). Sdat works in 32 bit and 64bit architecture.
