Uninstall HIPS using InsFireTdi.exe

Dear All,

I install manually McAfee HIPS on XP sp3 without problem.

Everybody well knows the difficulties to unstall it.

It seems to have several solution to do that.
- Directly from EPO (but for an manual uninstall, is not the solution)
- By unlock interface then disable IPS/NIPS then uninstall from add/remove program or by msi command
- using clientcontrol.exe, with 'clientcontrol.exe /stop <password>' to stop HIPS then you can uninstall it from add/remove program or by msi command

But i discover recently a new possibility :
At the same foler where clientcontrol is copied, an other tool is copied too :
InsFireTdi.exe. When you execute it, McAfeeHIPS is completly remove without define password (a good news !!) but I don't find any information about this tool. Someone know exactly what this tool do ?

thanks in advance for your help,

Best regards

RE: Uninstall HIPS using InsFireTdi.exe


I said something wrong

I've just tested again to uninstall HIPS using InsFireTdi.exe but now it doens't work anymore. May be I tested 2 methods in the same time to uninstall HIPS and I have believed that using InsFireTdi.exe had worked
