    Hi, assuming you've nothing related to McAfee installed, and you have run the Mcafee uninstall tool referred to above, then these should be safe to remove.

    You can back up your registry before you start just to be sure, or update your disk image- or just those specific keys- just in case.

    Note that some refer to specific file or folders- use file explorer to check there's nothing there- if there is, delete it.

    Note McAfee Webadvisor is probably a separate product- if so, check if you can uninstall it.
    Thank you @dalchina

    I did all as you suggested but the problem still exists. I think Windows format will be the only way to solve this mystery as suggested by Microsoft. Can't believe McAfee is doing this to stress their product purchase?

    Out of curiosity, try creating a new user for test purposes and log in as that user and see if there's any change.

    If not, you can try an in-place upgrade repair install which keeps all programs and data.

    For this you need an iso of your current build- freely downloadable. Tutorial available if needed.

    Did you actually run the McAfee Removal Tool (mcpr.exe)? You keep saying you removed all McAfee files but did you actually run the tool? It makes a difference.
