Various digital security solutions are floating in the market. One antivirus software can be better than others in terms of different parameters. So, it may happen that the user may like to switch from one antivirus to another antivirus software. But, before moving from one security solution to another, there is a need to uninstall the currently installed software on the PC. The same is the case with the McAfee antivirus software. All one looks for some McAfee uninstaller application. Let’s understand the essential steps required to remove the McAfee software for Windows and Mac operating systems.


Uninstalling from Mac

In Mac, there is only one solution available for the McAfee software uninstallation, unlike Windows. To begin the uninstallation in Mac, perform the steps mentioned below:

  1. Close all the web browser applications for a smoother uninstallation process. This closure of applications helps to remove the McAfee browser plug-in properly.
  2. Go to the Dock, and launch the Applications folder.
  3. Next, tap twice on the McAfee Internet Security Uninstaller (a McAfee uninstaller application).
  4. Select the Continue option.
  5. Enter the Mac administrator password and click OK to proceed further with the uninstallation process.
  6. Hit the “Finish” button.

Uninstalling from Windows

For Windows users, there are two options available – Control Panel and MCPR (McAfee Consumer Product Removal – a type of McAfee uninstaller application). To remove the McAfee software using the Control Panel, implement the tasks provided below in chronological order:

  1. Go to the taskbar.
  2. Click on the Start menu icon.
  3. Select the Control Panel application.
  4. Next, choose the Programs and Features option to proceed further with the uninstallation process.
  5. Tap on the McAfee application and click on the “Uninstall/Change” option.
  6. Enter the password related to the application, in case it is password-protected. Otherwise, move ahead with the rest of the uninstallation steps.
  7. Hit the “Next” button.
  8. Choose the appropriate checkboxes from the McAfee Security Centre before the uninstallation.
  9. Hit the “Remove” tab.
  10. Be patient and sit tight till the time the uninstallation process gets completed.
  11. Restart the system to clear out all the cache files, if any left, even after the uninstallation process.

First, to remove the McAfee software by using the MCPR, download the tool from the appropriate location. Next, follow the steps mentioned below:

  1. Launch the MCPR tool.
  2. Tap on the Yes option (it can display Continue or Run as per the Windows version).
  3. On the McAfee Software Removal window, click on the “Next” button.
  4. Go through the end-user license agreement and select the “Agree” tab.
  5. Next, the Security Validation pops out, on which the user has to type the captcha characters (check that these are case-sensitive).
  6. Hit the “Next” button.
  7. Restart the PC to finalize the uninstallation.

However, as per the recommendations, the MCPR tool is not so safe. So, Windows should prefer the Control Panel option, which is a more manual process over the MCPR.


McAfee software uninstallation is easy for both the renowned operating systems. However, for Mac, one gets two options. After uninstalling the software, one can protect their PC with any other antivirus software or security solution.
