McAfee ePO agent uninstall

I keep forgetting how to uninstall the ePO agent, so this is mostly a reminder to myself;

Command line to manually remove ePolicy Orchestrator.
FrmInst.exe /REMOVE=Agent

FrmInst.exe is in the “program filesmcafee…..” directory…

And no you are right its generally not a good idea to remove the ePO agent, however as we are moving to Microsoft Forefront Client Security we sometime come across a remaining ePO agent which makes not much sense 🙂

Useful Command Lines;
Uninstall McAfee Virus Scan 8.6
MsiExec /X{35C03C04-3F1F-42C2-A989-A757EE691F65} /q
Uninstall McAfee Virus Scan 8.0i
msiexec /uninstall {5DF3D1BB-894E-4DCD-8275-159AC9829B43} /qn
Uninstall McAfee Virus Scan 7.1
MsiExec /X {59224777-298D-4E9C-9AEB-4A91BDA01B27} /q

Uninstall ePO agent;
"C:\Program Files\Network Associates\Common Framework\FrmInst.exe" /forceuninstall
or
"C:\Program Files\McAfee\Common Framework\FrmInst.exe" /forceuninstall

If you are lazy (like me ;-)), then I have created an uninstaller that will do all the work for you,
it was created in the AutoIT script language, you can download it both as a
stand alone EXE and an AU3 (the script file);

or the compiled EXE version here

If uninstall FAILS, then here is McAfee’s own guide for manual removal;
