How to Watch Avatar Movie in 3D on PC

I might be one of those unlucky fellas who can’t watch Avatar in 3D as there’s no theatre nearby playing the movie in 3D.

The reason is simple because in a movie theatre, the movie is filmed with two cameras next to each other to create the depth of field. Every frame alternates between these two cameras while you watch the film. All the frames from one camera are polarized in a clockwise direction and the frames from the other camera are polarized in an anti-clockwise direction.

Few days back I purchased a Vaio notebook in which McAfee Internet Security Suite trial was installed. I was interested in getting rid of this as I had a Kasperksy license which I was using on my desktop pc. But, even after uninstalling the program from add or remove programs, the program wasn’t fully uninstalled.
