Remove McAfee Agent and McAfee Product From Multiple System Using Windows Group Policy

Jump to solution

Hi all,

We have an environment which McAfee Agent and other McAfee were deployed using McAfee ePO Server but currently the ePO server is no more in place hence the bulk remover of McAfee and other product from the system is no longer possible.

We have over 100 system been managed by ePO and we want to remove the McAfee agent and other products running on them without visiting the systems one after the other.

 

Is there a way we can push an uninstallation policy to the system using windows Group Policy (GPO) ? or any other way to uninstall the McAfee from the 100 PC's without visiting each system one after the other.

Hi @Solopraiz ,

If the goal is to remove all McAfee Products from these systems which no longer being managed by ePO, I would suggest deploying by any method the Endpoint Removal Product,

Reference:

Endpoint Product Removal tool to uninstall McAfee products
Technical Articles ID: KB90895
https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB90895

Command to uninstall all with no reboot: --accepteula --ALL --Noreboot

However, I am not a GPO specialist, but it seems you can only deploy .msi

Reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/troubleshoot/windows-server/group-policy/use-group-policy-to-instal...

https://www.advancedinstaller.com/user-guide/tutorial-gpo.html

But,

I would suggest leaving the EPR tool in a shared folder for those 100 Systems, then use the system scheduler to run a task only once to uninstall all McAfee products,

Reference:

https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows-server/administration/windows-commands/schtasks-create

IMPORTANT: EPR tool must be executed as an Admin.


Kind regards,
