This is not a McAfee Agent password, per se. It is Endpoint Security 10 asking for a password. It can be changed via the Policy Catalog under Endpoint Security Common policies.

Hi you can save/modify the agent administrator password in Credentials for agent installation: section only.(system tree->new system->Credentials for agent installation: ) Note:select the check box Remember my credentials for future deployments .

Hope this is what you are looking for?

I don't think this is what I was looking for? So currently, when you attempt to uninstall the McAfee agent or product from a machine (Add/remove Programs) it prompts for a password, which the default is "McAfee". Same for if you open Endpoint Security window on a machine and want to edit local settings in there, you have to select "Administrator Log On" then prompts for a password, which has a default password. I want to change those passwords to be something else.

I've attached examples of what I'm referring to.
