I am on a crusade to nuke McAfee and need help

I am currently working to purge absolutely every trace of this annoying "McAfee LiveSafe" bloatware from my PC and so far I've managed to delete almost everything except a set of unkillable processes that I can't get rid of, even using Powershell as an administrator. There are also remaining files that I can't destroy. Any idea on how to get rid of them

If the MCPR removal tool and Windows removal does not help I have seen posters helped via support in manually removing files and editing the registry. You probably need to give the tech access to your PC or ask them to provide the steps.
