i guess i deleted the original installer package and cannot remove Sophos Virus Removal tool so that i may download the current version. do i need to edit the registry? thank you for your help in advance
Please go to the following location and check if the installer is present:
C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Virus Removal Tool\
64-bit computer: C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos\Sophos Virus Removal Tool\
C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos\Sophos Virus Removal Tool\
If the installer is available, please you can run the following command line:
C:\Program Files\Sophos\Sophos Virus Removal Tool\SVRTcli.exe -uninstall
C:\Program Files (x86)\Sophos\Sophos Virus Removal Tool\SVRTcli.exe -uninstall
Please refer to the article Overview of the Sophos Virus Removal Tool (SVRT). Let me know if this helps your query.
In reply to Haridoss Sreenivasan:
thank you Haridoss
i wasn't able to locate the installer file you mentioned, unfortunately. i've had several system resets since adopting Windows 10 last year. every time i get a newly updated
OS i seem to be lacking in some of my files. can you tell me how to use Regedit to delete the entries that are causing the problem with the uninstall?
i probably don't really require the SVT since i do have Sophos Home beta running, but i believe you can't have too many "safeguards" at your fingertips these days.
again thank you very much for your kind assistance.
