So last night I tried to upgrade to Window's 7, everything started smoothly, until I got into the compability section. I removed everything McAfee related and it still persists on telling me that McAfee Personal Firewall is still there and it will not let me proceed with the install. I tried a program called Revo, to go through everything and weed it all out, and still it persisted. I tried MPF Cleaning Tool straight from McAfee, I even tried there other tool to remove it, but its not compatible with the Enterprise edition. I went into the registry myself and removed everything manually, its like a disease, lol. So my question. Is there a way to force Window's 7 to move ahead with the install? I am getting frustrated, and was trying to avoid a clean wipe because there is just too much data to transfer off my computer at the moment. Something so simple that I never use anyway is holding me back from updating and I'm about to start getting creative in my deletions, lmao.
As an update, I had to wipe the system, you can't get rid of McAfee, its like a virus, I manually went through and tried to get rid of every little line in the registry but there was always one more, I even tried to use the program you provided and it couldn't get rid of everything, I also used the tool McAfee provided still no luck. I ended up pulling all my data into a partition and wiping the whole damn thing and starting from scratch, in the end it worked out pretty good, I love Windows 7.
