Manually uninstall McAfee Agent

How to manually uninstall McAfee Agent.

This has to be one of the worst pieces of software to uninstall.  If you’re lucky enough to “uninstall” it from Add/Remove Program, it will eventually reinstall, if it’s managed by an ePO server.  Uninstalling it as local/domain admin won’t help either.  I Google’d the problem and found a no hassle way to manually uninstall McAfee Agent from the command prompt.  See below for the steps.

Open the command prompt.  Type cd\ to get to c:\.  Then type cd program files -> cd McAfee or cd Network Associates , whichever works -> cd common framework -> frminst.exe /forceuninstall

It will begin uninstalling the McAfee Agent.  Once it’s completed, restart the computer and proceed to uninstall any other McAfee program using Add/Remove Programs.
