Can not stop or delete McAfee core services

Jump to solution

These four services are running in the background and I can not stop or delete them.

McAfee Core Firewall Service

McAfee Management Service

McAfee Management Service Host

McAfee Process Validation Service

The program does't show up to uninstall via windows tools.  I have tried running the MCPR removal tool 6 times to remove the remnants but it stalls at "removing product MFP". 

When I try to delete the core files I get error saying access denied; even when I run as administrator.  What can I do?  Please help.  Thank you. Bill

Hi @xwacx 

We are sorry for the inconvenience. Please initiate MCPR Tool and while is being stuck at MFP, Please open Task Manager and end the McAfee Family protection process. MCPR will finish removing all McAfee traces. Please let us know the outcome after performing these steps.
