We all know how hard it is to find an antivirus solution that perfectly fits our needs, but we also know how difficult it is to get rid of it once we decided to remove the whole software. Well, deleting a McAfee security solution isn’t such a terrible job after all, although it’s obvious that uninstalling it manually would surely ruin your day no matter what.
McAfee Consumer Product Removal Tool does exactly what its name says: it removes security solutions developed by McAfee and installed on a certain computer.
The app comes in a very light package that doesn’t even need to be installed, which makes the whole removal thing a lot easier. The problem is that once you double-clicked it and pressed the Next button, you can’t stop the process at all. We were a bit surprised during our test because the removal started all of a sudden, although we were expecting for the application to ask which tool we wanted to get rid of.
The interface is nothing special, it’s just a window with a few Nexts to be clicked by the user. Probably the biggest problem is that it doesn’t come with a cancel button that could be pressed once the removal process begins. Who knows, maybe we decided to keep the software in the last second…
Overall, McAfee Consumer Product Removal Tool is great for those who had problems with McAfee’s software and want to uninstall it in a simple way. Still, if you have multiple apps wearing McAfee’s badge and you want to keep some of them, you should try removing them manually.
