SOVLED: McAfee Removal Tool / Uninstaller

McAfee Product Removal Tool UninstallerIf you have a McAfee product that is stuck on your computer, there is a tool that McAfee developed to solve the problem.   The McAfee Endpoint Product Removal tool will forcibly remove:

  • McAfee Agent
  • McAfee VirusScan Enterprise
  • McAfee Host Intrusion Prevention
  • McAfee SiteAdvisor Enterprise
  • McAfee Data Loss Prevention
  • McAfee Active Response
  • McAfee Endpoint Security
  • McAfee DAT Reputation
  • McAfee Client Proxy
  • MVISION Endpoint
  • McAfee Policy Auditor Agent
  • McAfee Endpoint Intelligence Agent
  • McAfee File and Removable Media Protection
  • McAfee Management of Native Encryption
  • McAfee Drive Encryption
  • McAfee Application and Change Control
  • McAfee Data Exchange Layer

This McAfee uninstaller should not be confused with the much less powerful McAfee Consumer Product Removal (MCPR) Tool which only deals with consumer grade software.  Both of these tools were written by McAfee and not us.

If you think you have a McAfee that is partially uninstalled and the McAfee Endpoint Product Removal tool shows UNDETECTED, put a check mark beside it and the tool will try to:

  1. Stop running McAfee Services
  2. Change file / folder and registry permissions back to default
  3. Delete McAfee related files, folder and registry entries

We have found this tool to be very helpful in dealing with McAfee products that were installed manually, through scripts and SCCM and through integrated products like Dell’s Endpoint Security bundle.

    This solved my problem! Thanks for sharing. One tip, the licence had expired, so I used the Nircmd runasdate application to run for March 2019. It worked a treat.

      Not that I am aware of. After playing with this for a while, I just manually ran it (as an Admin) on the PC’s with McAfee problems.
