I have an Windows XP-32 system, running a (Cox-supplied) version of McAfee. That seems to work fine.
There is also for reasons I don't know (I inherited this computer) a version of McAfee.com here. It runs and burns cycles, and I'd like it to go away. It seems to be located in Program Files/McAfee.com, but I cannot delete any of the files in this directory including .dll files. I suspect some the dll files are held down by the execution of mcafee.exe (seen in the the windows task manager. There doesn't seem to be a "security tab" visible on properties of any of these files, so I cannot change owner or verify that I have rights to delete these.
Any suggestions on how to get rid of this?
