Re: Error 1336: McAfee Threat Prevention


I've resolved this by uninstalling ENS and sometimes the Agent as well with the 2.3 version of the removal tool.  Another problem I've seen along with this is you cannot open file explorer to get to the removal tool once you copied it over.  Use IE or FF to browse to the folder containing the removal tool, then run it in graphical mode.  Make sure you reboot the system after uninstalling, then install from the stand-alone installer or ePO.
