HAve you run any sort of virus scans etc to see if you have not per chance picked up a nasty..As judging by your other posts you have made, including the one Muckshifter closed, i'd say you have a nasty on your computer..

Try the following and see what is picked up...

1.) Trend Micro Online Scanner
2.)KAspersky online scanner
When you have run those, see what they have picked up. then download/install and run the following.
1.)Super Anti Spyware
2.)Spybot Search & Destroy

When all this is done see if anything has been picked up. Also do yourself a favour and get some decent AV installed.Get rid of McAfee. Get yourself something like Kaspersky. You can't go wrong with that, or even try one of the many half decent free ones you can get on the net. (MadX gone mad recomending free AV :p)

Hi There,
You should be able to find to find instructions for mcaffee here

Also, you can uninstall most programs from the programs/features area in your control panel but i would rather utilise what you have instead of getting rid of it just cos you cant navigate your way around it.
My advice is keep trying with it and you will eventually get what you want from it.
Zzzzz
