Removing McAfee VirusScan Corporate Agent


Recommended Posts

Can anyone suggest a methodology for removing entirely McAfee VirusScan Corporate Agent program from a work computer please? My work computer comes installed with this Anti-Virus software pre-installed via a remote software installation routine controlled and updated by an external IT support desk team.


 


I have the Administrator login & password, but cannot just simply uninstall the program using control panel routine, because it's locked from being modified by the IT department who control its installation. It has all the usual self-protection routines that prevent it being modified.


 


I want to be rid of it because it is configured to scan absolutely everything all of the time, which is slowing the computer response time down to a crawl. I have installed Avast! instead which I can configure to only scan new items with the highest likelihood to provide an 'in' for attack.


 


Can anyone provide advice for how to completely remove McAfee VirusScan please?


 


Thank you.

Well first and foremost in this case you need to make sure your company is fine with you changing the software.


 


That said I'm guessing you tried this

Otherwise I've got no idea, though you might try explaining the issue to the IT department and see they will reconfigure it
