    McAfee SecurityCenter: unsuccessful uninstall

    dagfla

      Due to repeated Update Manager error messages, I attempted to uninstall my ATT McAfee Security Center and SiteAdvisor, but they won't uninstall.

       

      Here's what I tried:

       

      I removed all third party malware/spyware programs (i.e. MalwareBytes)

       

      I ran McAfee Virtual Technician. (It found errors but did not fix them)

       

      I tried ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS to remove SecurityCenter: I get an error message "McAfee UI Host needs to close" . I can not get to the uninstall process once the "needs to close" screen in cleared.

      .

      I tried ADD/REMOVE PROGRAMS to remove Site Advisor. I get an error message "Site Avisor needs to close". I can not get to the uninstall process once the "needs to close" screen in cleared.

       

      I downloaded MCPR.exe. It ran to show only that it was extracting files, but there was no other action. Nothing else happened.

       

      I want to clean ATT McAfee Security Center out of this Windows XP computer, and reinstall from ATT. How to do this?
