Interesting Endpoint Removal Predicament...
I've got an interesting predicament on my hands. I downloaded a copy of Endpoint Protection provided free by my university onto my Windows 8 laptop thinking that it would run. Turns out that due to compatibility issues, it won't boot at all (I'm thinking the version provided by the University is outdated and won't run on Windows 8)
But... because I'm just a student and don't have the key, I'm not able to update the version to a Windows 8 compatible version. (The current version is 12.1.1101.401). Because of this I'm trying to uninstall the program but am having a heck of time doing it.
I've done pretty much everything I can think of to get rid of it but have failed with every attempt. I've gone into just the regular Add/Remove program, regedit, tried deleting the program files, and and msiexec from the administrative command prompt, but due to the permissions being screwy, I can't remove anything. When I attempted to run CleanWipe I get the following error:
