How do I get rid of McAfee Personal Security tasks???

I cannot seem to rid myself of the McAfee Personal Security processes that are running on my Dell laptop. I have used the MCPR several times, to no avail. The task reappears after each reboot. There are actually three processes:

McAfee Personal Security (twice)

Runtime Broker

I did not install it (to my knowledge) and I don't want it. I found where the files are, but I can't remove them, they are protected somehow. 

Does anyone know how to deal with this?

Hi @DaleC 

Greetings from McAfee!!

Sorry for the inconvenience caused. McAfee Personal Security is a Universal Windows Platform (UWP) security app that is designed to work in Windows 10 S

McAfee Personal Security allows you to connect to the internet through a VPN, easily install McAfee True Key and McAfee WebAdvisor, and sign up to our Identity Theft Protection service.

Please go through the article added below for more information
