McAfee Livesafe and McAfee Vaults

Recently a McAfee vaults icon appeared in 'This Computer' on a Windows 10 PC. Thinking that I inadvertently triggered its installation , I restored a recent backup to get rid of it. However, it just as quickly reappeared confirming that it was installed without my permission or knowledge. It is not an obvious component of the LiveSafe firewall/anti-virus suit.

Scanning the help forums has not helped at all because all the suggestions require running non existent parts of old products or uninstalling McAfee LiveSafe as a whole - hardly helpful.

How to I get rid of this totally unwanted utility.

File lock is now automatically installed I and the mods have passed this feature onto the powers that be to allow it to be removed but as it just has been added I would not expect success soon.
