How to really, really uninstall McAfee Internet Security?

When I try to uninstall McAfee Internet Security (on a Win 8 system) multiple popups appear similar to

"Close service ...... first", "Close Program first....""Stop service first ..." "Close window ....frist"

This is extremly annoying.

Is there a (third party) program which really, really uninstalls all McAfee Internet Security stuff no matter if McAfee is currently running or not?

Assume this is via the regular method - Control Panel > Programs and Featuires.

Then try the removal tool which is available on the Support pages:  http://download.mcafee.com/products/licensed/cust_support_patches/MCPR.exe

Reboot immediately afterwards.
