Now this McAfee thing is annoying me
« on: May 11, 2005, 06:24:51 AM »
O23 - Service: McAfee SecurityCenter Update Manager (mcupdmgr.exe) - Unknown owner - C:\PROGRA~1\McAfee.com\Agent\mcupdmgr.exe (file missing)

After removing all components of McAfee, this thing is still here, I cannot delete it and the McAfee tech support wasn't really helpful.  Hijack This can't remove it as well.  So what should I do to get rid of it?

see here, guys: maybe this is useful for you. Remember to reboot to see the effects of this operation. (I'm a McAfee Firewall user) ;D

Remove it from your programs "start up" list, in case it is listed there.
If you have Spybot: Mode --> Advanced mode --> Tools --> System startup.

You could try a utility like unlocker http://ccollomb.free.fr/unlocker/ and try and delete it manually

I install unlocker but they said theres no locking handle found.  Spybot System Start up didn't have anything that is simliar to McAfee.  I check Windows Task Manager in the process tab and the only thing that seems similar to McAfee is the smss.exe (is that McAfee?) Also Kamulko! where is service panel? Your tip seems to be my last hope now.  :)

try this way: start - open the control panel - see the icon in the first image (something like some worker's tools). In Italian the name is different "Gestione Periferiche" = "Peripherals Management" or similar  ???

wait before reboot, I didn't do anything yet, I just only open the computer managment.  :)  What should I do after I open Computer Management cause I can't find "show hidden Peripherals"?

(Note: This might end my misery of McAfee, I can feel it)  ;D
