    Mac EPO Software removal

      I have removed McAfee's virus scan from my Mac running OS 10.5.8 but the EPO software remains and I cannot seem to get rid of it. I have tried the uninstall program and it does not get rid of it. Can anybody please point the way to rid myself of this software?

          If this is a corporate workstation and you are trying to remove the ePO agent I would recommend that you contact your companies support group. There is a reason the ePO agent is installed to corporate workstations :)

          Now, if this is not a cororate workstations the removal depends on the version of the ePO agent. Would you happen to know what version?

            I do not know what version I was using. All I know is that I tried your software on a trial basis.

              Let assume you have the version that comes with Security for Mac 9.0.

              To uninstall the ePO agent there should be an uninstall script found in the following path:

              /Library/McAfee/cma/

              Run the script uninstall.sh, this should uninstall the ePO agent.

              If you do not have this file/path then we will assume you have the version that comes with VirusScan 8.6.x which you can uninstall the ePO agent agent with a script in the following path:

              /Library/NETAepoagt

              Run the script cmduninst

              If you don't have any of these then, I am out of ideas... At that point, I would search for anything McAfee or VirusScan and delete it (that is if you are not using anything else from McAfee).

              **In your last message you said that you tried 'your' software - so you are aware, I have no relationship to the McAfee corporation, I am a user of the software just as you are wink
