We have a laptop that has the Sophos Endpoint software installed, but it is not showing up in the Sophos Central Portal. We are trying to uninstall Sophos on this machine. Of course, it is telling us tamper protection needs to be disabled in order to uninstall.
We have tried following this link:

Does anyone have a fix for this?
