We have a laptop which has was no entry for McAfee in 'Programs and features' so I removed McAfee via the EPO server. This seemed to only remove the program files but leave all reg entries and services running.
I have tried to delete the reg keys manually but keep getting access denied. I can't change owner of the reg keys either due to the same message. I've also used psexec to open regedit as system level permission but am still unable to delete the keys!
I have also tried installing McAfee again but get an error each time.
Has anyone got any ideas other than formatting the laptop and reinstalling windows?
NOTE: The registry key will change if the McAfee Agent is installed before the point product is installed. McAfee products might be listed under both registry keys, but will have to be removed only once if the uninstall string is identical.
Select the key for the product that you want to remove. For example, EPOAGENT3000. Right-click Uninstall Command and select Modify. Highlight all of the text in the Value data field, right-click, and select Copy. For example:
