Hello - Im trying to uninstall McAfee but it wont let me.

Resolved Question:

Hello - I'm trying to uninstall McAfee but it won't let me. For the last two days the McAfee Security Center is actively being installed. This installation has been going on nonstop. I did not request this software to be installed. The McAfee software came loaded on this PC. I've never subscribed to additional services from them. When I try to uninstall McAfee it won't let me because it wants to wait until the installation is completed. It's really messing up my processing speed and who knows what else. Could you please help me uninstall McAfee? Thank you, Joe

Done that, run it in order to remove any trace(s) of McAfee still present in your system

Let me know if that works?
