(UN)Install McAfee on WHS RRS feed

  • Question

  • How can you Uninstall McAfee on your WHS and also off your WHS-Console, because the console does'nt show an Add-in. It's like McAfee is build in.

    Hoe kan ik McAfee goed op de WHS installeren of eraf halen en uit de WHS-console verwijderen, want ik heb een licentie aangekocht, maar kan wegens een niet goede versie van Windows op de server, de installatie niet compleet maken en er is geen Add-in in de console, zodat ik ook daaruit McAfee kan verwijderen..

    THIS WORKS/DIT WERKT !!!
    Effectively, McAfee is built in to some OEM servers. Some users have been successful in removing it by logging in to their server desktop (Note: this is unsupported), and removing McAfee through Add or Remove Programs.
    THANKS !!

    I'm not on the WHS team, I just post a lot. :)

  • Hi Verhoef,

    I have had McAfee before and it was showing as an Add-In if I went to settings->Add-Ins.  I could then uninstall it and then remove the add-in from the Softwarea\Add-Ins folder.

    If it's not there then you'll have to use Ken suggestion of removing it using a remote session.

    Cheers,
    Al
