Uninstall McAfee Security for Microsoft Exchange 8.0.7987

Dear All,

We moved our emails to office 365.  We now need to uninstall McAfee security for exchange 8.0.7987 from the on-prem server, however during the uninstall process which is initiated from the control panel, we are getting an error; see attached.


Any idea as to what the solution might be?  Also, are there any manual uninstall instruction for this particular version?  I don't want to use the uninstall instruction for MSME 7 as they don't seem to be valid.


Thank you,

Uninstall instruction.

+ uninstall McAfee Anti-spam module for MSME.

- Then uninstall the MSME.

From the error, It seems to be due to the MSME plugin installed on the registry.

Please contact the McAfee Support to remove the MSME manually from the registry.
