The computer must be removed from Managed Mode, before this option is functional.
 
To take the computer out of Managed Mode, run the following command on the client computer, while logged on as an Administrator:
 
Click the Start button.
In the Start Search box, type in cmd
Right click on the Command Prompt in the search results and select Run as Administrator.
Click OK or Yes to the UAC prompt.

Type frminst.exe /remove=agent and press Enter.
 

This removes the computer from Managed Mode, and the McAfee Framework Service can now be removed through Add \ Remove Programs.
