I have run the Mcafee removal tool 2 times and yet I still see Mcafee Central on my 8.1 machine.

 

 

Is there anyway to get rid of this POS from my machine?

 

 

Thank you in advance!

 

MK

McAfee recommends you uninstall using the Windows Control Panel before running the MCPR (McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool)...see the IMPORTANT note in How to uninstall or reinstall McAfee products using the Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR)

Did you do that?

Sometimes the uninstall works more effectively if you first stop and disable the program's service (and associated processes in Task Manager) or perform the removal in safe mode so there are less processes which can interfere with the uninstallation.

thanks for the info and the replies everyone.  I think it's gone now since it doesn't show up in my Programs list.  

 

My god, why on earth would anyone put such a monstrosity on their machine?
