McAfee Security Scan Plus will not uninstall

Jump to solution

I did not know this was installed when I put on "Free Acrobat Reader" and I did not want to install it!  I have tried all 3 ways to uninstall it and it will not come out!  Please HELP me get rid of this!  I already have antivirus software and this interferes and slows down my computer!

Try Tapping the Tab key on your keyboard.  When I tried to uninstall Security Scan Plus a small window came up that was supposed to contain an option to confirm the uninstall, but the window was too small and would not show the option.  I tapped the Tab key on the keyboard when the small window was visible and that showed an Uninstall button.  I found this solution on Reddit, so many thanks to the Reddit user who discovered and posted it.

Using the Tab key to access the uninstall button also worked for me.  But I also needed to empty my system Trash icon in order for the Application to completely uninstall.  I was disgusted that I needed to provide Mcafee with an e-mail address in order to access this customer service site to get this uninstall tip.  Their software comes across like Malwware, installing itself and beginning to scan my hardware etc.  @mcafee   @securityscanplus
