Uninstalling Shavlik Protect Agent

Using Machine View to Uninstall Agents

You can use the console to uninstall agents from both connected and disconnected machines. The uninstall will occur immediately for agent machines that are online and able to communicate with the console. For disconnected machines, the uninstall will occur the next time the agent checks in with the console or the cloud and sees it is no longer assigned to a policy.

To initiate the uninstall, from within Machine View, right-click the selected machines and select Agents > Uninstall.

 

Manually Uninstalling Shavlik Protect Agent

To manually uninstall Shavlik Protect Agent from a target machine:

  1. Select Start > Settings > Control Panel > Add or Remove Programs.

On Windows Vista and other newer operating systems this is Start > Settings > Control Panel > Programs and Features.

  1. If the agent policy contains a patch task, locate the program named Shavlik Protect Patch Engine, select it, and then click Remove.

  2. If the agent policy contains a threat task, locate the program named Shavlik Protect Threat Protection, select it, and then click Remove.

  3. If the agent policy contains an asset task, locate the program named Shavlik Protect Asset Engine, select it, and then click Remove.

  4. Locate the program named Shavlik Protect Agent, select it, and then click Remove.

The disadvantage of using this method is that the uninstall will not be reported back to the console.
