Uninstalling preinstalled McAfee

I'm trying to uninstall preinstalled McAfee.

Bought new Asus Windows 10 Home laptop. There was McAfee preinstalled.

Uninstalled McAfee Windows 10 app. There is no McAfee at Control Panel add/remove programs atleast anymore. There was still some McAfee processes running at background.

Then I used MCPR.exe (McAfee Consumer Product Removal tool)

There is still mcafeeintegrationservice.exe named "McAfee OS Switch Detection Service" process running at the background.

What is it? Can I somehow uninstall it?

Re: Uninstalling preinstalled McAfee

Hello @uninstaller 

Since there are McAfee traces left, we need to remove them manually. I've sent you a private message. Please check and respond.
