WebAdvisor won't uninstall & unable to download removal tool, please help


WebAdvisor won't uninstall on my pc operating windows 10. Ive uninstalled McAfee but the WebAdvisor is still present in my cpu. I try to uninstall it through my control panel but nothing happens when I click to uninstall & then restart my cpu??

A Mcafee technician has also tried to help me with this issue but we gave up after 2 hours on the phone trying to guide me through different ways of getting the WebAdvisor uninstalled through the cpu's C:Drive & over a dozen restarts of my cpu.

The WebAdvisor is blocking all downloads through my cpu's web browsers so I am unable to download the Mcafee removal tool to remove it this way also.

Any help please asap as this is affecting my ability to work as I use my pc for business.
