Silent Uninstall command for HIPS 8.8

Uninstall HIPS 8.8

=================

could you please help to get silent uninstallation command for uninstallaing HIPS 8.0. When I tried uninstalling using misexe /x <productcode>, I get the error as

"Product: McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention -- Product is in self-protect mode.  Please disable self-protect mode before uninstalling".

Before tyring the command , I tried stopping the service "McAfee Validation Trust Protection Service" but I get the message as " Error 1053: The service didnot respond to the start or control request in a timely fashion".

Can you let me know how to stop or delete "Validation Trust Protection Service" using command line.

You must uninstall all McAfee products to remove the MVTPS service (several McAfee products rely on this service to exist; once all McAfee products, that depend on this service, are uninstalled, the MVTPS service will be removed as well).

Not able to remove McAfee products ( Mcafee Agent )  before HIPS as it is throwing the error " Mcafee agent cannot be removed as other products are still using it.

  • The McAfee Agent does not use the MVTPS service.
  • Remove the McAfee Agent last after all other products.
