Uninstall controlled applications you do not want

Before you uninstall controlled applications, ensure that on-access scanning for controlled applications is disabled. This type of scanning blocks the programs used to install and uninstall applications, so it may interfere with uninstallation.

You can remove an application in one of two ways:

  • Go to each computer and run the uninstaller for that product. You can usually do this by opening the Windows Control Panel and using Add/Remove Programs.
  • At the server, use your usual script or administration tool to run the uninstaller for that product on your networked computers.

Now you can enable on-access scanning for controlled applications.
