ArcGIS Pro Install Failure 2.1 - 2.3.x and McAffee rules

Hello - Warning! This post contains profanity!


We just discovered something very disturbing in the installation packages preventing Pro installs of 2.1  - 2.3.x.  Running the install as an administrator from the installation package, or running an un-install from control panel on windows 10 machines - both the install and and uninstalls fail in a very disturbing location.


Specifically, the install / uninstall fails at this location during the runtime:


C:\Program Files\ArcGIS\Pro\bin\Python\envs\arcgispro-py3\Lib\site-packages\notebook\static\components\codemirror\mode\brainf**k\brainf**k.js


I'm sure everyone understands what letters the '**' is referring to. 


The file is inaccessible through any js or readers like notepad ++, even with admin rights.  Regardless, I wouldn't care that the name contains profanity only that this is where install - uninstalls are failing!


First off, what developer would ever name a directory and a js file with that name??!!


Someone at esri needs to look into this ASAP!
