I prefer to have a lean & mean ePO server, so all I want on it are policies, queries and extensions for ePO (obviously) and VirusScan as that's all we're using it for. After going from patch 3 to patch 4 this morning, I noticed I have lots of crap that I already manually removed that's not pertinent to our environment, such as...
GroupShield HIPS SiteAdvisor SpamKiller System Profiler Virex
Why does the upgrade reinstall all that crap? I've wasted the last 20-30 minutes just removing this crap, and would prefer to not have to do this the next time a patch is released.
Is there a fast way of deleting all this without having to do it manually within the ePO console? I removed the extensions and most of the policies, but there has to be more than 30 different queries I'd like to remove. Doing that manually will take a long long time.
