I need some help removing CA Internet Security Suite. I managed to remove most of the component parts but I can't remove the Firewall component or the security center itself. When I go to remove it through the uninstall.exe or through Add/Remove in the control panel, it simply comes up stating there are some locked registry files, and then the normal uninstall screen doesn't pop up. I would go through and set the permissions to each of the registry files, but there seem to be about 30 or more, so I was wondering if anyone knew of another way to go about removing it?

On another note, I have heard of an uninstall utility for it, but I have not found a single link to it.

Here's CA's answer, for what it's worth.

http://crm.my-etrust.com/CIDocument....rk=0&KDId=3239

It links to a remote support session? Hmmm, not sure why they don't have a downloaded freestanding uninstaller available like many vendors do. I'm fairly certain they used to, but all my old links are dead now.

Yeah, I saw their "remote support session" answer, I didn't want to try that route though. I work at a Computer Repair shop, so I'd rather avoid doing any remote sessions that could waste more time on the repair job.

No, the customer didn't need an AV installed at the current time, and I managed to disable all the processes it was running at an earlier date so I had to call it good. I forgot to bring the program to work with me and didn't have time to try and find it >.<.

I'm going to keep the copy of revo uninstaller in case I have another issue like this later on.




I appreciate the help McNinjaGuy :), go ahead and call this thread solved.
