Can't uninstall mcafee for mac

I having an issue with a handful of MACs trying to get the older 1.1 version off and installing 1.2.  The uninstall of 1.1 fails in EPO, so I manually go to the mac and go to the directory /usr/local/McAfee and run ./uninstallMSC.  This gives a message "

admin previleges are requires touninstall Mcafee Security".   I run chmod +x uninstalMSC and execute sudo ./uninstallMSC and the same error persists.  It does not prompt for the user password prior to running.   I have also done sudo su and then at an   administrative command prompt executed ./uninstallMSC with no luck. 


Anyone else seen this or have an idea of how to fix?  The mac is experience no other problem outside of Mcafee that is known.
