Need a way to uninstall McAfee agent remotely on clients

Hi

A bigger customer has swiched from McAfee to F-secure and they want help with installing F-secure. F-secure will not install because of McAfee Agent 4.5 and VirusScan Enterprise 8.x. F-secure can uninstall the VirusScan modue but fails with the Agent and the whole installation fails.

 

F-secure support told me to Call McAfee or to manually walk around uninstalling McAfee ;-(

 

I hope somebody here can help me.

 

this will uninstall the agent but the user have to allow UAC window so its not so good

 

"C:\Program Files\McAfee\Common Framework\frminst.exe" /forceuninstall

or

"C:\Program Files\McAfee\Common Framework\frminst.exe" /forceuninstall /silent

Hi!

 

 

The problem is connected to the rights to stop McAfee services. These settings is made within McAfee Management Server, (ePolicyOrchestrator Console), and have to be changed before F-Secure deployment, using uninstall tool within F-Secures installer.

 

Please read this article and hopefully it will help you: https://kc.mcafee.com/corporate/index?page=content&id=KB65863

Hi!

 

 

According to F-Secure information whish McAfee products and McAfee versions is going to be uninstalled during installation of F-Secure, I guess the uninstaller will not uninstall later versions then McAfee Agent 4.0.0.1496 and McAfee AntiSpyware Enterprise Module 8.7.0.130.
