Re: Mcafee installer always running

Hi @Former Member,

Thank you for your post.

I am afraid what you have is a corrupted installation of McAfee Endpoint Security and your Windows Installer detects that it is corrupted and missing files that it needs in order to function correctly thereby initiating a self repair to resolve the same.

I would recommend using Endpoint Product Removal Tool to remove the software as traditional methods of removal may not be of help here.

The Endpoint Product removal tool is available to all McAfee Customers with a valid Grant# and can be obtained by logging in using the same and their associated email ID in the below link:

I sincerely hope this helps!
