How To Manually Remove McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator

A friend asked me to look at their computer today because they were receiving some warning messages regarding anti-virus software. Upon inspection I noticed that he had Microsoft Security Essentials, which is what I recommended, installed as well as the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator. This was a Windows XP machine so I initially went to the Add/Remove Programs control panel to remove the ePolicy Orchestrator but there were no McAfee applications displaying so I had to figure out how to manually remove the application. Follow the instructions below to manually remove the McAfee ePolicy Orchestrator from your computer.

WordPress Mandigo Theme Options: You Do Not Have Suffecient Permissions To Access This Page

I upgraded to WordPress 3.0 awhile back on the site where the below issue was noticed and in fact am running WordPress 3.1 on the site now. Today when attempting to block a new page from showing in the navigation bar via the Mandigo theme Theme Options screen I received an error complaining about permissions. I had to check to see if I had modified anything recently that could have effected these permissions but was unable to come up with anything. Turns out in the changelog that I keep the item that made the most sense was the upgrades from WordPress 2.X to WordPress 3.X. Below I describe the error in more detail followed by how to resolve the issue.

WordPress Lightbox 2 Plugin Pop Up Falling Behind WordPress Theme Content

Typically I will use the WordPress Lightbox 2 plugin to provide a format for images within posts on a WordPress site. Basically this plugin provides an ajax window that images open in and you can scroll between the images with mini arrows to the left and the right side or you can close the image with a close button that appears at the bottom right of the image display. You can also change any of this appearance easily through the various CSS files included with four different default themes with Lightbox 2. While working on a WordPress site earlier tonight I ran into an issue where the lightbox 2 image pop up was falling behind the body content. The fix ended up being easy but it needed to be pointed out for others to fix quickly.
