Hi Hugh,

You can’t remove McAfee dlp from your desktop because of the “show challenge-response on uninstall” is enabled. If this feature is disabled manual removal of McAfee dlp thru control panel add/remove program can be done.

To disable this feature open McAfee

1.       Go to ePO > Menu > Data Protection > DLP Policy > Agent Configuration.

2.       Select Advance configuration.

3.       Now check the box with “show challenge-response on uninstall”.

4.       On the right select disable.

5.       Select apply this policy and wake-up the agents.

6.       Go to control panel select add/remove program.

You can also try McAfee removal tool from their official website.

Hope this help.
