How to remove mcAfee 10.6.8 from macos big sur

Jump to solution

Hello, 

I've tried this :

```

sudo /usr/local/McAfee/uninstall EPM

sudo /usr/local/McAfee/uninstall ThreatPrevention

sudo /usr/local/McAfee/uninstall Firewall

sudo /usr/local/McAfee/uninstall WebControl

``` 

But despite a success message, I still get a mcAfee icon in mac top menu bar. How to totally removed McAfee from my system in command line? (no uninstall button available here)

Many thanks

hi 

you use below command to uninstall the point product completely 

# #sudo /usr/local/McAfee/uninstall EPM

 

if the above command fails to remove the product you follow this remove manually

Hi @chris35 ,

The commands are correct as per the Doc below.

https://docs.mcafee.com/bundle/endpoint-security-10.6.0-installation-guide-macOS/page/GUID-08609BF1-...

If you're seeing McAfee Agent icon on the menu bar then please follow the suggestions below.

Thanks Pravas,

But I've no McAfee directory in /Library so it's impossible to run sudo /Library/McAfee/cma/scripts/uninstall.sh 

I've only the /usr/local/McAfee/uninstall file.

Is there a way to get this uninstall.sh file ?
