Manual Uninstall McAfee VirusScan 7.1 on Windows XP

For some strange reason you do not have the options to uninstall the program from the Add/Remove Control Panel. You cannot find an uninstall option under the menu. You can use the command prompt to do it.

Note: You need Administrative rights to perform these steps.

From the Start Menu select:

  • Run
  • Type cmd
  • Click OK or press Enter
  • Type: net stop McShield
  • Type: net stop McTaskManager
  • Type: net stop McAfeeFramework
  • Type: msiexec /x {59224777-298D-4E9C-9AEB-4A91BDA01B27} REMOVE=ALL REBOOT= R /q
  • Type: exit

Esta Bom! That’s It!
