Script to stop/kill services with Imagename SYSTEM in taskmanager view

To uninstall the application McAfee Desktop Firewall 8.0..

I have written a VBScript mainly using taskkill command to kill services..
The script works fine from outside.. but when i embed the script in MSI as a custom action, though the script get's executed, it doesn't kill the services..

The services Imagename in taskmanager view is shown as SYSTEM, so i can't use SC/NET coomands to stop services.. Plz anyone provide me a script that helps stop/kill a service of imagename SYSTEM, that works fine when i embed the script in MSI
