A little more detail please. Is this corporate/enterprise McAfee, or were users using individual installers, maybe it's another product such as Adobe that McAfee installer came bundled with? Are the editions and versions uniform across the devices?

it was an enterprise product many  years ago. Now we have sophos but it looks like some stations still have mcafee.

removing an antivirus product from a computer can be a complicated process.

They all hook into the registry and sometimes their own installer does not remove them properly.

I would test any process you do manually on a few computers first before I GPO it.
