For McAfee, try this:

How to uninstall or reinstall supported McAfee consumer products using the McAfee Consumer Products Removal tool (MCPR.exe)

I can only assume that your still high number of processes is due to certain programs you have installed. I have 30 programs installed and have never seen over 60 processes, regardless of how long my PC has been running.

That's appalling, but I guess not surprising when you consider the source.

Have you tried to uninstall after a boot into safe mode (should be accessible from a menu if you tap F8 during boot)?

I wonder if you need to change the permissions on your user account, are the using the admin account? If not you need to .

Hello there, sorry that I late but I was sleeping.

As legacy said, are you Administrator of the pc ? Do you have permissions to remove software ?

Also, if MCAfee remove tool can't help you try to remove it in Safe Mode, or using Revo Uninstaller.

Running more than one anti-virus is really bad and I expect at the root of your problem. Try booting to safe mode to remove Mcafee as mentioned.

When you open Task Manager and click on column UserName you'll see who have started that process...
