How to remove en batch?  like hundreds of computers?

No I will n ot visit each PC.

I need a batch file or a executable I can deploy via SCCM.

Running short on time and tinkering each pc with a KB article is not the right answer.

Re: unable to remove Mcafee


Could you tell us how many PC's are running with VSE 8.5  ?

if there is more no of PC's kindly create a client task to remove the VSE 8.5 . . . . :-)

kindly use the Query tab to find out the VSE8.5 Compliance machine and create a task for that machines.....
