McAffe on Mac M1 Mini

After a moment of madness I installed McAfee virus scanner. Could not start its Firewall after all recommended accesses were granted. Even without the firewall it was using 4GB+ of the memory too much for me .

Uninstall it with CleanMyMac didn't work neither did Googled sudo commands as McAfee shifted its instal to /usr...

After I found its uninstall command I got rid of it( I have full a license for it). It is my second and last attempt trying to run McAfee on a Mac.

It needs to be rewritten for Mac instead being ported from PC to Mac.
