McAfee Error Code WINERR RegDelete Key()failed
by Judy Week
(New Braunfels, TX)
McAfee periodically blocked my America Online (AOL) Browser, Microsoft Internet Explorer Browser and Google Chrome Browser.NONE of these issues were resolved.
McAfee also blocked AOLTopSpeed. This is a web acceleration software designed to speed up your web browsing experience.
AOL Top Speed saves frequently visited web page files in a special local browser cache which it checks when I visit a web page before seeking out the required files on the AOL Service.
I contacted AOL Live Help every day for more than TWO Weeks!. I was given conflicting information regarding a solution to the issues of the web browsers and AOL TopSpeed.
I gave up and deleted the McAfee software. My next step was to use the McAfee Removal Tool
I used the McAfee Removal Tool FIVE Times!
. The removal tool Failed
to remove all traces of McAfee. I received the following error message:Error Code:
WINERR RegDelete Key()failed. Error: 5
Failed to remove HKCR\file\shellex
I did a web search and tried to delete instances of McAfee. However, there are still traces of McAfee of my machine which I am finding very difficult to remove.
In conclusion my experience tells me that McAfee DO NOT offer quality security products
There's a section under McAfee Firewall to select the option to decide whether or not to block items. I clicked the no block option, but McAfee still blocked the items. This is simply unacceptable.
I decided to download Norton Internet Security Free 30 Day Trial
. I am very impressed with this product!
Norton Internet Security is a total computer security suite protecting from viruses, malware and cyber criminal activity.
It includes continuous live updates which is one thing less to worry about.
Personally I would rather pay for a product that keeps my computer safe and running smoothly, than use the one that is free from AOL.
