    huge video problems (i think)

    I installed the latest version of McAfee virus scan, it told me to restart, so i did. When i returned to windows my stb 4400 doesn't work (i'm typing this message in 16 colours at 640 x 480) i've got the latest drivers for the card and i've restarted my computer many many times, i've even tried to put my g200 in. It puts a better picture onto my screen (32-bit 1072 x 728, or whatever), but i can't click on anything (i mean anything) the mouse moves but nothing is clickable. so i popped my tnt back in so i could get onto the internet and ask for help. HELP HELP HELP!!!! please

    Uninstall Mcafee.

    I have seen soo many problems with their latest programs, I would stay away from them if at all possible.

    If that does not work, its possible the install of it overwrote some important system files...

    I had a Mcafee nuts and bolts install that almost made me have to re-format my drive, it screwed my system up so bad. I ended up having to boot to safe mode and uninstall it, then repair my registry.

    I agree, uninstall McAfee virus scan and get a whole new program like Norton Antivirus 5 or some other one. McAfee does not have that good of a virus scan anyways.

    I agree with CollinJ and the gang,
    McAfee is herendous. I work in a retail software store and I have seen so many problems with McAfee's products.

    One customer installed it on her laptop, but it refused to boot as long as McAfee was installed! Had to "safe mode" it and uninstall.

    Stick with Norton Antivirus 5.0 if you need something.

    Hello Collinj,mrfart and madman,
    I agree with them about mcafee, you need get mcafee out your system and reformat. When you try on norton system work that it will work better than mcafee. I current have norton systemwork in my pc with voodoo3 that no problem.Norton systemwork help you much better than mcafee.
    Thank Rwc

    I'm still dying out here.
    McAfee is gone and everything is still the same evil way it was before i unstalled it.
