Method 2- Use McAfee Consumer Product Removal tool (MCPR)

You must save all the open files and close all the programs before you start running the McAfee Consumer Product Removal tool. Also, note that you should download its fresh copy for each use.  Before you start:

  • Cleanup Unsuccessful
  1. Now, you have to take the action according to the message you see.
  2. If you see the “Removal Complete” message, then you have to restart the computer to complete the process.
  3. If the “Cleanup unsuccessful” appears, you can try to download the MCPR tool again and restart your PC.
