McAfee Agent 4.5.0.1852 acting very strange

hi experts,

 I have the above version of McAfee installed on my system and can't open the antivirus console to run the mcafee software. on top of that im getting a bunch of duplicate mcafee icons on the system tray like 15 of them and once I hover over them with the mouse they dissapear. What can I do to resolve this behavior?

I removed some but the MacAfee Agent even though disabled can’t be removed.
I disabled it and restarted but still can’t remove it
