After having many issues with attempting various forms of Sophos Client removal, I decided to attempt to write my own removal script\tool. This tool will close all Sophos related tasks, stop all Sophos services, and then search the 32 and 64 bit registry hives for the uninstall strings. The strings are passed to variables that enforce the silent removal of the various portions of the Sophos products. Then, the Sophos directories in Program Files, Program Files (x86), and ProgramData are removed, and all related services are deleted.
Please feel free to use, share, and update the tool as you see fit. It may not be perfect, but in our environment it definitely has been getting the job done. I hope this helps all of you who are having issues with the removal of the Sophos Client!
Note: This tool is for WINDOWS Only!
I have verified this works on Windows 7, 8.1, 10, and all versions of Windows Server from 2008 R2 through Server 2019
anyone try this and got good results?
