Re: SAE 3.5 can be easily uninstalled in Chrome

Found out a few days ago that SAE 3.5.0.724 is not compatible with Chrome (can't lock down SAE in Chrome) and McAfee is working with Google on addressing this. Probably look for a patch 2 version or hotfix in the coming months.

Re: SAE 3.5 can be easily uninstalled in Chrome

I am seeing this in my environment as well. SAE seems to have an issue with FireFox 26 that also causes problems for IE. McAfee's recommendation is to uninstall SAE until a fix can be issued. I created an uninstall task in ePO and it fails every time on multiple systems (browsers are closed on the systems). It also doesn't show up in Add/Remove programs and there is no obvious uninstall in the SAE directories on the PC. So, is there any way to effectively uninstall SAE with ePO as it is supposed to work?

Re: SAE 3.5 can be easily uninstalled in Chrome

My uninstall task works? I just send and after a reboot/browsers closed and re-opened its gone.

The SAE policy says if it should appear in add remove programs or not, try changing the policy and pushing that out to see if it appears.

Re: SAE 3.5 can be easily uninstalled in Chrome

Thanks pierce. I tried that and it is still not working. I found the setting to make it visible in Control Panel. However, when running the uninstall, it pops up a message about an access permissions issue and the service is unable to be stopped. I then found additional settings under Enable/Disable and Hardening, protecting SAE settings in connection with VSE. I unchecked these and pushed out policy, then tried the uninstall, and it still didn't work. I then tried uninstalling at the system, and it still failed. Same errors.I found another post that mentioned SAE not uninstalling if it has policy applied, so I created a new policy with SAE disabled. This didn't work as well. I have a ticket open with McAfee on this, since it seems difficult to uninstall. I have heard indications that occasionally, a removal tool needs to be used.
