Uninstallation of McAfee

In order to uninstall McAfee Total Protection 2009 (i.e. the Security Center, Firewall, VirusScan... all the other stuff that comes with Total Protection) from Windows Vista SP1 (32-bit) would I just go into "Uninstall or Change a Program" in the Control Panel and select "McAfee Security Center" or are there more steps involved.

Furthermore, for the re-installation, is it just as simple as downloading the DMSetup.exe file online and opening it. Does this pretty much sum everything up or are there intervening steps that should be done prior to the reinstall? I guess I want to do if it's necessary for me to go looking for files and delete them prior to reinstallation.

Many thanks
