McAfee LifeSaver installer fails to install on MacOS Monterey 12.5

I download the McAfee LifeSaver installer for Mac, but when I launched it, it fails to install, instead it shows a pop-up window that says "Eliminate older McAfee software, Cancel, Eliminate" and when I pick "Eliminate" it stops running and fails to install. I check if any older version of McAfee is installed and found nothing, there are no older installers in my downloads folder, there is no McAfee app installed. What can I do to fix this problem?Captura de Pantalla 2022-08-03 a la(s) 18.12.33.png
