Cannot delete McAfee files

I havent used McAfee for years, but today I noticed that several McAfee processes are running. When trying to stop these and/or delete their origin folders I'm denied access despite being admin. Thus I tried to download the installer again to properly uninstall it through that, but I cannot download it without registering for new products. What should I do?
