  • Will it cause a reboot of the machine after it runs (meaning with the AVGremover.exe cause a reboot)?

    The script states User Interaction is required, what interaction? I have not yet run the tool.

  • By user interaction I mean that you must be infront of the machine (either physically or via remote) in order to interact with this tool.

    To quickly distinguish scripts which require user interaction, we've adopted the convention of putting an ! in front of the script name.

    The same goes for reboot scripts...
