I'm not sure about McAfee, but McAfee might be thinking that windows ‘uninstall’ is a virus and is protecting itself.

Are you using McAfee’s uninstall program or windows?

You could try to re-install McAfee(so that the missing file is replaced) and then try and uninstall it again.

It came preinstalled with the computer, is there a utility that can delete it without the file ?

I don't specifically know. I know that people like Microbell do.

Wait for some one to respond and look through the archives for something while you wait.
