windows 7 control panel not working

I just joined Plusnet and installed the Plusnet Protect and the control panel cannot open now.  It is impossible to uninstall it or use the Restore feature again.  When I clicked the McAfee and Plusnet Protect and got no response. The Start menu frozen too.   Please help!!!

I am strongly of the opinion that the free Microsoft Security Essentials offers better protection than old versions of McAfee security software like Plusnet Protect.

I removed the Plusnet Protect now and re-installed the Microsoft Security essential. It works normal.  Thanks for the advise.

Can we not get this absolutely vile language added to the swear filters please?

There is far too much of this verbal abuse going on - mainly in the tech help board I've noticed.

I need a new signature... i'm bored of the old one!
