How to stop McAfee SecurityCenter?


McAfee SecurityCenter is running in my laptop.

I want to deinstall and remove it.

But .. before I can deinstall it .. it must be stopped (not running), right?

How can I do that (make it inactiv) ? Thank you.

My plan is:

  o stop McAfee SecurityCenter

  o deinstall it.

  o reboot

  o run MCPR

  o reboot

  o ..

Have I forgotten something?

Thank you for your help ...

No you haven't forgotten anything but there is no need to stop anything first, it will do that by itself during the next step.

Make sure you use the latest MCPR by downloading it from here:

TS101331 gives the procedure.
