McAfee won't delete from my computer (On Mac)

Hey, so I'm not very good at computers and so it could just be something stupid, but my father got McAfee on my computer a while back, maybe 2 or 3 years ago? It was never really of use to me, but last night it wrongly flagged a website, and i could not access it. It was pretty late so I wasn't thinking well, and i trashed McAfee (as well as its uninstaller). I tried to access the website again this morning, only to be met by the same flagging message. I tried getting the application as well as its uninstaller back using Time Machine, but it had nothing backed up.

It's not really urgent, since its shagleomegle more of an annoyance than anything, but it would be cool to get it over with. I don't know very well how McAfee works, would it be useful to contact my father?

Also, before last night, trying to open McAfee or its uninstaller would immediately crash them for some reason? I don't know if this is relevant, but just in case.
