also keep in mind that NOTHING will play nice with microsoft's own software ( auto installed) so any and every third party WILL have some conflict
Microsoft dose this on purpose.
now there is a MS Windows version of ClamAV (it's opensource ) that will not interfere .It dose NOT run in the background .You have to run a scan .
but i would also install "Spy bot search and destroy " (SpyBot S&D) it's opensource

add and remove software will remove mcafee
Except for the hidden system registry entries and a hidden file on the boot partition and maybe some leftover bits and pieces.
For the windows registry there is a "free" sort of ( one time ONLY use ) for free
has a one time registry cleaner that will remove the system registry entry’s that mcafee DID NOT remove ( on purpose)
as to any leftover parts on the boot partition ( MBR) ??? have win7 reinstall( fix) the mbr
there may or may not be anything installed to the MBR by mcafee ? but who knows .It is a VERY invasive program ( like a fungal infection ) it spreads everywhere .
