Can I remove McAfee Security completely without ROOT my device?

I update my Xperia Arc to the new v4.0.2.A.0.42, in this version i try remove the unuse apps "McAfee Security". It really does, but after I reboot my Xperia Arc, the McAfee will AUTO REINSTALL.

I really wan to remove the apps, because it will always came out in notification bar, anyone know how?

Open 'settings'-

open 'location and security'-

open 'select device administrators'

here you will see Mcafee listed, uncheck the square box in front of it. Close all of it and now uninstall Mcafee like any other application.

try this :smileyhappy:

it seems that some users can't uninstall it, you can always debrand your phone

and also wait for a SE moderator to reply
