I've tried Add/Remove but there is no Remove button for it and I've also tried the provided removal tool but it says no McAfee Products were detected. I'm trying to uninstall to change to Avast

Re-install the McAfee product. Restart your computer and attempt to uninstall it again.

Same way you installed it. Run the setup from the CD or run the downloaded setup file. I think it will give you options of repair, reinstall, uninstall etc. If uninstalling is not working, then try reinstall before uninstalling again.

I'm not sure where the CD is. My uncle sort of does all the techy stuff for us.
Can I just disable it from starting up or something?

I don't think the MCPR.exe removal tool works for Enterprise products. So you will probably have to manually uninstall it.

Instructions are here:
