McAfee came with my new laptop and I already uninstalled all of it's components present in the uninstall programs section. But I later found that there are still McAfee services running in the back ground. Particularly McAfee Anti-Malware core/McAfee On-Access scanner service since it's drawing a fair amount of memory and CPU power. I went to services to try and stop it but all of the options were grayed out. After doing a bit of research I tried opening command prompt, ran as admin and used "sc stop "mfecore". However I got the error "[SC] OpenService Failed 5:

Access is denied
"

I do I get rid of the McAfee services that are still left over and running?
