Uninstalling competitor products VSE 8.5i

Has anybody any experiance in Uninstalling competitor products VSE 8.5i ?

What works , what doesn't work.

We are looking at a large scale deployment of VSE 8.5i but we need to remove the previous AV first.

Many Thanks

symantec and sophos both have removal tools you could batch/script out
you havnt said what the prev software was...

The previous version is F-secure.

I was hoping to do this just using EPO if possible Iknow that F-secure is on the list of items
the VSE 8.5i will uninstall...but how sucessful is this ?

Is this automated with no user interaction required or is there something i need to configure for the uninstall to action.

Can you not run some trials? there is no way I'd be able to get something like that past our software release without testing on actual build machines first.

Even if it works with no issue for someone else doesnt mean it will for you.

It should be no user interaction, but you may need a reboot (test it to find out) and it you have set this in epo agent users would get the count down reboot to update AV files dialogue

I was just looking for idea's at this stage.. we are weeks away from deployment.

But yes , there has to be mutiple statges of testing before actual deployment. The implications are too hight if this goes wrong..
