I work in a small company and our administration requested to change the McAfee products which are in use now, with another antivirus provider.
I have tried to uninstall McAfee products already installed on our computers and laptops but the packages are protected with a password. I have tried the default password which should be abcde12345 but is not working.
The previous IT Admin which work here before me is no longer with the company and I cannot find him. Also, because his relations with the company did not end really good, I do not think he will be a real help.
All that I want is to avoid reformatting and reinstalling the OS and software packages which we use usually, the main reason is because there are a lot of different configurations and driver packages (the company did not use one computer brand, it is a mix of them).
I have tried to find a backup which does not have McAfee installed but no success.
Thanks for your reply. Indeed that is the password.
Unfortunately, now I have another problem, uninstall process is working up to 99% when it stops for 10-15 seconds and it cancel by itself.
It has no errors, no messages, nothing. I have tried on a couple of different laptops, same thing ...
McAfee Agent is uninstalled, but I have the same issue with Endpoint Security.
I have discovered also that on some machines, probably by mistake, users removed C:\ProgramData\McAfeeTmpInstall_Web Control files and Endpoint Security Web Control cannot be removed.
File necessary for uninstalling the program are missing.
