In the epo console system tree, highlight the system you are working with, then actions, agent, modifiy or edit policies on a single system. Choose mcafee agent, general policy. Edit assignment, break inheritance, then click on new policy, duplicating the existing one that is assigned. One of the settings in that policy is to enable self protection. Once you save that new policy (name it to identify it as self-protection disabled), make sure that is the one then assigned to that system. Send the system a wakeup call (from actions, agent, wakeup agent).
On the client then that you are working on, go to start, run, type services.msc and that will bring up the services so you can go to mcafee agent and stop that service.
