How to uninstall a preinstalled LiveSafe from Windows 10 S mode?

I have here a brand new convertible with Windows 10 S mode (that only allows apps from Microsoft Store). It has McAfee LiveSafe preinstalled. The problem: LiveSafe is NOT COMPATIBLE with Windows 10 S mode - to run it you have to leave S mode ... so it is useless as on this PC Windows 10 S mode is mandatory. But the bigger problem: for uninstalling it you have two possibilities: a) via "settings / apps" - but if you try that, you are told that by using the uninstaller you have to leave and give up Windows 10 S mode (what is unacceptable); second possibility woud be b) with the uninstaller from your website. But this also is not allowed in Windows 10 S mode. So how to uninstall the useless LiveSafe from Windows 10 S mode???
