Remove McAfee Total Protection

  • Hi All,

    Does anyone have a script to remove McAfee from XP workstations. We are replacing it with KES and hope not to have to do manual un-install's. Appreciate any help or directions.

    Script Name: McAfee TOPS removal
    Script Description:

    IF True
    THEN
    Write File
    Parameter 1 : c:\temp\vssetup.exe
    Parameter 2 : VSASharedFiles\mcafee\vssetup.exe
    OS Type : 1
    Execute File
    Parameter 1 : c:\temp\vssetup.exe
    Parameter 2 : /Uninstall
    Parameter 3 : 1
    OS Type : 1
    Pause Script
    Parameter 1 : 120
    OS Type : 1
    Delete File
    Parameter 1 : c:\temp\vssetup.exe
    OS Type : 1
    ELSE

    You can download vssetup.exe from within the web interface of McAfee service.
