So I figured out that I was looking in the wrong place to uninstall the McAfee Personal Security application. I was looking for it in the control panel, however it is not in the control panel it is in the settings uninstall applications. 

When trying to use the MPCR tool, every time I used it, it went through said it was uninstalling all of the McAfee products, made me reboot 3 times before I figured out that it was not uninstalling anything, then finally found that I could just simply uninstall it from the settings uninstall.

McAfee needs to stop sneaking there apps onto consumers computers

through Adobe and other applications, it really makes McAfee more of a Phish Application, and quite frankly a VIRUS!!!

I have NEVER freely installed any McAfee Applications and never will so long as these are the types marketing that McAfee uses.
