uninstall PGP

Created: 17 Dec 2012 | 3 comments

Try to unisntall , using Vista 32 bits.

Get error disks still encrypted.

 

Using pgpwde --status --disk 0, I got:

 

C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop>pgpwde --status --disk 0
Warning: PGPwde is running in restricted environment.
         Some features are disabled
Disk 0 is instrumented by bootguard.
  Current key is valid.
Request sent to Disk status was successful
 
 
So no encryption is on the only disk on the pc.
 
I try to remove the bootguard:
C:\Program Files\PGP Corporation\PGP Desktop>pgpwde-admin --uninstrument --disk
0 --passphrase "xxxxxx"
Warning: PGPwde is running in restricted environment.
         Some features are disabled
Disk 0 has an authenticated encryption key.
Disk 0 use decrypt to remove.
Operation uninstrument disk failed:
Error code -11971: already in use
 
No way to get the disk free of PGP.
Spent days in frorums and webs trying things but without any result.
 
Any suggestion?

Are you running these commands from the same admin account that you encrypted from?

Is this a standalone installation or a managed client installation? Have you tried decrypting via command line as well?

pgpwde --decrypt --disk 0 --user "username of passphrase user" -p "passphrase here"
