Removing Services from Vista

When I purchased my machine, it came with McAfee's 30 day trial installed on it. Since I already had a subscription to Norton's 360 V2, I uninstalled McAfee's. Going through my services though, I noticed that there are still 2 McAfee services in the services tab. McAfee System Guard and McAfee Real Time Scanner. I would like to remove those two services but the system will not allow me to do so. I have admin privileges so that should not be an issue. Can anyone point me to the correct procedure to remove these two services from my machine?

Run the MCPR removal tool in my signature and then reboot. They should all be gone, including the removal tool itself.

This is assuming that you had at least 2005 onwards versions of McAfee installed and that you do not have Windows 98 or Me, as the tool wont work otherwise.
