Failed reinstallation: Unexpected Failure in product state 2

Hello,

after downloading some kind of Video converting freeware it downloadet many strange programs and adware in the background without my permission. Then it killed Sophus so it said, that there was a critical failure with the installation (but it was not installing anyting). Many strange chinese popus annoyed me so i loadet a recoverey from this day but before the installation of this strange freeware. After this the adware (is hopefully) away. But i wanted to make sure it is away so i tryed starting Sophus but it did not work anymore. So i uninstalled it and I tried reinstalling it. While installing it there was a error :
There was an unexpected problem installing Sophos Endpoint Security and Controll. Details: unexpected productstore 2 for product with code:
{788B9788-7F03-4A2B-8258-3445C0278C33}

I allready searched the registry for this string"{788B9788-7F03-4A2B-8258-3445C0278C33}", but it did not find anything

  • Hi Florian, 

    Please look for the install log/bootstrap in the %temp% and share the log to investigate the issue.

    Hi Florence, 

    From the log "check for existing installation of Sophos Anti-Virus for XP or Sophos AutoUpdate ..." I see that the installation is failing due to the left overs from the previous uninstall. Perform a clean uninstall again to restart the machine and reinstall Sophos Endpoint. Please refer to the article How to uninstall Sophos Endpoint Security and Control from the command line or with a batch file. Let me know if this helps resolve your issue.

    I tried that regedit thing but there were no Strings from Sophus left so I could'nt do anything there. Then "Windows installer parameters" seem to work. After that I tried that Batch Document with the net stop "Sophos AutoUpdate Service" but it did just open and imediately close. Then i restartet my Computer but i still could not install it. There is still the same error

  • In reply to Florian von Oepen:

    Hi Florian,

    Please try the batch document in the Safe mode.

  • In reply to Haridoss Sreenivasan:

    ok I reastartet it into safemode but it didn't help. Nothing changed. It just started and directly closed. The installation was also not pissible

  • In reply to Florian von Oepen:

    Hi Florian, 

    In that case please try using CCleaner to clean the PC before the next attempt to reinstall.

  • In reply to Haridoss Sreenivasan:

    Did it. I especially told him to clean the registry but this also didn't change anything

  • In reply to Florian von Oepen:

    Hi Florian, 

    Do you have a known good restore point on your machine before this issue occurred? If so I suggest you restore to the restore point or you would have to format the system.  

  • In reply to Haridoss Sreenivasan:

    You mean a recovery before the installation of Sophus? This would be hard because i quickly installed it after christmas as i got my new PC. I have allready done a recovery because of this strange adware thing i described in the beginning.

  • In reply to Florian von Oepen:

    Hi Florian,

    I was referring to the recovery before the video converting freeware was installed. If the recovery is not available, am afraid you have to format the machine. 

  • In reply to Haridoss Sreenivasan:

    I allready did that. At the first post I made here

  • In reply to Florian von Oepen:

    HI Florian,

    You mean you have formatted the machine?

  • In reply to Haridoss Sreenivasan:

    No sorry I meant load a recovery from before the problem 

  • In reply to Florian von Oepen:

    Ok i did find a Solution without wiping the computer. I searched for different uninstall-Scrips for Sophus. This was the only one that did work for me (you need to additionally download a exe [simply look in the comments]) but it did work now :D
