Have searched the forum , but cant find even a link these days for un-installing correctly Mcafee enterprise virusscan 8.7i that is operational.  Tried the un-installer , but doesn't remove enough to install  even a newer Mcafee suite product.  Any help would be appreciated !  Know this is an EOL product , but had to press a older desktop in service and must get the BEAST un-installed.
Thanks

Hi BGM,

which error code you get?

I suppose that you tried un-installation process through Control Panel (Add - Remove programs) via "Change" button?

cya later,

Samker


P.S.

I splitted your post from other Topic and started this (new) one... on this way, it'll be easier (faster) for you to get help.

Hi @wwjd,

First I'll ike to say that, RevoUninstaller Pro Is not free program!
Mere RevoUninslaller yes is free, but not Pro version!

@BGM I like to tell that, please read this first:
http://service.mcafee.com/FAQDocument.aspx?id=TS101331
and try their own  Removal tool (MCPR) to uninstal leftover data
from your computer. :bih:

I stand corrected ... I do have RevoUninstaller (not pro) and it does a good job of removing left over files ... It is worth a try if nothing else works??

Hello @wwjd,
You are rigth @wwjd... :) Even free version from RevoUninstaller is better than Windows's own add remove application! :bih:
Without it (Revo or e.g.) you have must to be installed VirtualMachine on your computer. It work many cases and it's safe!

Yes, tried the standard windows installer ( OS is XP SP3 ) and it appears to un-install , however there are still lots of registry items left , the problem is that when you try to install another licensed Mcafee product ( Mcafee Live Safe ) ( might not be the best but have licenses ) , it will not install.  Mcafee small busiiness/home tech support cannot resolve and basically blame it on not fully removing the enterprise version.
There used to be a Mcafee removal tool for Enterprise Virusscan 8.Xi since it was so difficult to get rid of , but I cannot find it anywhere. I dont have access to the enterprise group for assistance. YOU WOULD THINK THEY WOULD BE HELPFUL REMOVING A CORPORATE TOOL AND REPLACING WITH A PROPER TOOL FOR HOME USE ???  Will follow the links below , have not tried the thrid party un-installers since there is not a lot of information about them.

Fintec , thanks for the info , however that for the consumer product.  Mcafee Enterprise Virusscan V8.7i is an enterprise product and appears that that tool is not made for the enterprise products. Still looking , you would think they would at least help those who are trying to do the right thing.
