I've been trying to uninstall McAfee Anti-virus because I have a new anti-virus that I want to install. I have McAfee PrivacySecurity and McAfee SecurityCenter in "Add/Remove Programs" that I want to uninstall. When I try to unistall McAfee PrivacySecurity, I get and Internet Explorer Script Error. In the Error message: Type mismatch: 'GetSilentUninstFlags'. It has under URL: "mcp://c:\progra~1\mcafee.com\agent\uninst\mpsrem.ui::uninstall.htm"

When I try to uninstall McAfee SecurityCenter, I get a message that says "Legacy programs must be removed first." and it doesn't allow me to remove the program

What can I do to uninstall McAfee?

Alex Saucedo,

The tool can be found here, along with instructions on using it. Just don't follow step 3 (reinstall your McAfee products)!
