files deleted and wont uninstall


Hi all

A while ago LinuxShield (mcafee's virusscan for linux) was installed but the files were deleted without running rpm -e <package name> i noticed this when i was installing an application with apt-get and it said that there were duplicate programes (which there is)
Code:
 out put of rpm -q LinuxShield

LinuxShield-1.0.0-404
LinuxShield-1.0.0-442

so my question is, how do i remove these two programs?, if i try to
rpm -e <either package>

i get the output

/var/tmp/rpm-tmp.90480: line 6: /opt/NAI/package/LinuxShield/setup: No such file or directory
error: %preun(LinuxShield-1.0.0-404) scriptlet failed, exit status 127


i check /opt and true enough there isnt a directory "NAI"

any ideas,

thanks in advance

Use synaptic to remove the old version or "rpm -e LinuxShield-1.0.0-404".
