MA 5.0.4 / MA 4.8 Patch 3 is the minimum supported version for Windows 10 Version 1607 (Anniversary Update). See KB84916.
Can you try simply upgrading rather than uninstalling?
enter into registry
removed all mf... - entries under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Control\SafeBoot\Network
shutdown /r /o selected safeboot with networking
removed all mcafee directories
removed all mf.. entries under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet\Services
removed all mf.. entries under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet002\Services
checked all mf.. entries under HKLM\System\CurrentControlSet001\Services
removed all Mcafee and Network Associates under HKLM\Software and under HKLM\Software\WoW6432Node
reboot again into normal mode
I would try what jrp78 recommended. The MA 5.0.4 should have been deployed prior to moving to 1607 as it's not supported but upgrading it with 5.0.4 (or 5.0.5) should return it to functionality which will then let you completely remove it if you still need to.
