I was given an older laptop by my sister and she requested I remove McAfee because, she cancelled the subscription for it. However, I have only been able to uninstall the McAfee Site Adviser. My typical approach is to accomplish actions likes these from the Control Panel yet, no luck. Do I need to disable one of the service for McAfee in order to remove it?

And, sometimes, if it is possible to boot into Safe Mode, that mode works real well for some uninstalls.

Welcome to the Forum, as my opinion first I don't have more an idea how to uninstall McAaffe. That's why I Google it.
Answers that I found on the Google.
* You must have installed Family Protection or Anti-Theft if it's asking for username and password. I don't want to install it!
* If they want to uninstall it, they need to install it, make an account (privacy) and even then isn’t difficult to totally remove it!
