Uninstalling McAfee security center

Wanted to uninstall / reinstall McAfee security center. On advice from Ex_brit tried to uninstall from Control panel but uninstall does not respond upon reaching last step (Remove). Tried deactivating computer as well as suggested elsewhere on net.

How do I uninstall some otherway?

Re: Uninstalling McAfee security center

Have you tried it in Safe Mode?  Of course depending on your system that also may not work.

If it wont go then it must be corrupted somehow and your only recourse would be to try the MCPR cleanup tool and reboot immediately afterwards to clean up everything.

But note that MCPR does not remove Anti-Theft if that is installed, and can only remove Family Protection/Parental Controls if you know the Admin password.

The only disadvantage of doing it using that tool only is that the online account will still show a license in use so if that causes a problem in future Customer Service can sort that out for you.

If the above doesn't work then Technical Support is free of charge by phone or online chat and linked under Useful Links at the top of this page.

Thanks for help. Used MCPR to uninstall/remove and it worked. Have now reinstalled.

Performance yet to be tested.
