Silent removal of Kaspersky Anti-Virus

This question has suggested answer(s)

Hello,

     We have taken over support for a client where the old IT Company also used Kaseya and deployed the Kaspersky Anti-Virus. We are going to be rolling out AVG to the machines instead and are looking for a silent removal option for Kaspersky. So far I have only been able to find the KAVREMOVER.EXE (http://support.kaspersky.com/faq/?qid=208279463) but this does not allow for scripted or silent removal. Has anyone built a script like this?

 

Thanks,

Daryl J

  • Get ths install ID from registry and use msiexec

     


    msiexec /x {ID} /qn

    If the install is password protected:


    msiexec /x {ID}  KLUNINSTPASSWD=****** /qn

  • Hello Dan,

        We do not have the password from the previous company, we can call and get it if necessary but do you know the default uninstall password that the Kaspersky deployment from Kaseya uses?

  • SeedPassword

  • where would I find the install ID?  

  • Did you get the silent removal option to work?

  • you can also obtain the uninstall string from the Add/Remove from the Audit Tab
