Unexpextedly have McAfee running in Task Manager

Jump to solution

I just noticed the following tasks in Task Manager: McAfee Access Protection, McAfee Core Firewall Service, McAfee Management Service, McAfee PEF Service, McAfee Process Validation Service.

McAfee was preinstalled when I bought this desktop two years ago but I uninstalled it and installed another product that I had licensed so I was surprised to see these tasks running. How do I get rid of them permanently? They do not show up in Settings/Apps/Apps & Features and I can't find anything on the Start Menu.

I suspect I might have missed unchecking something when I updated Adobe and these got installed inadvertently, but I have no idea where they came from or what product they are associated with.
