McAfee Firewall Core Service still present after removing HIPS 8.0.0.1919

Jump to solution

I have a Windows 2008 R2 SP1 Server to which McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention 8.0.0.1919 (HIPS) was installed by mistake. I set up a removal task through ePO and ran it on the server. Now when I look in Add/Remove Programs McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention is not there but when I look in the services.msc I see McAfee Firewall Core Service still listed. My question is how do I safely remove this service from my server? Thanks in advance.

Have you rebooted the server yet?  This is required after uninstalling Host IPS.

Thanks Kary. After the server was restarted the service was removed.
