Uninstalling LiveSafe

Jump to solution

I cannot remove Live safe from a Lenovo laptop (2017), windows 10. I tried the Add/remove, and also using the removal tool, but it stops with the message 'REMOVING PRODUCT MFP'. 

I followed a similar thread here which said it was solved,  but there was no information on the thread as to how it was solved. 

Any help would be welcome.

I followed another poster, and solved the issue.

  1. Rebooted in safe mode
  2. Deleted all McAfee folders in program files and program files X86,
  3. Ran the Removal tool.
  4. Rebooted to normal,
  5. Ran the reboot tool.

 Think your solution would have beeen easier.

@GerryA 

Run the McAfee removal tool and when it stops at removing product MFP, open Task Manager, check for Sediag.exe and right click + End task which will continue to remove. Please do restart your PC after completion of removal.
