McAfee Internet Security Blocks All Internet Access

Then another 10 minutes before the progress bar appears after you make selections on what to uninstall. Then it hangs at about the 20% mark. MCPR won't even run (and neither will MVT) whether booted normally to an administrator account or in safe mode.
So, how do I remove McAfee software so I can access the internet again? (Looks like time for another security provider or perhaps I'll just run with Windows Defender - tired of all this drama year in and year out with McAfee.)
