: This is a messy one, but here is a plan for you to try .... unless someone comes up with a better suggestion.Plan A: dependent on being able to load Windows normally
Try this with a good dose of patience ...
Start your system normally and allow it to load as far as it will go: Give it some time.
Then press Ctrl+Shift+Esc
Does the Task Manager window appear?
If the Task Manager opens, attempt to get to the "Processes" tab, and to locate entries belonging to McAfee and Eset, and use the "End process" button to shut them down.
You may have to google the processes if you don't recognise what they are.
Attempt to access "Add-Remove Programs" again.
Attempt to un-install McAfee.
Re-boot the computer.
Download and run the McAfee "removal tool".
================Plan B: dependent on being able to boot into "Safe Mode with networking"
Boot into "Safe Mode with networking".
Download the McAfee "removal tool".
Open Task Manager and "End process" any McAfee process that may be running in the "Processes" tab.
Restart the system normally.
