Solved!

UNINSTALL MCAFEE

HP Recommended
HP ENVY Phoenix 860VX
Microsoft Windows 10 (64-bit)

FOLLOWED MCAFEE'S RECIPE AND IT SEEMS TO BE GONE.  HOWEVER A FILE SEARCH LISTS REMAINING FILES.  I'M RELUCTANT TO JUST DELETE THEM.  THIS IS A NEW SYSTEM, I DON'T WANT REGISTRY PROBLEMS ETC.  WOULD APPRECIATE SOME HELP.

Dear @Al_in_Cal

 

Based on the screenshots above, you can safely delete everything that is visible in the pictures. These are not really McAfee leftovers - instead, they are McAfee related stuff part of the HP Windows image.

McAfee instructions were:

"To remove McAfee software completely from your PC, first use Window's built-in system to uninstall McAfee software. Next, download the McAfee Removal Tool (MCPR.exe) from the McAfee site.

McAfee Removal Tool works on Windows 2000, Windows XP, Windows Vista, Windows 7, Windows 8, and Windows 10. It is not compatible with Windows 98 or Windows ME."

 

This is what I have done and I have only done it once.
