I just got off an end users machine who uninstalled the other AV bloatware because it slowed his machine down too much. Not an uncommon sentiment, but then I installed webroot on one of my machines and I was able to uninstall it from add/remove programs without a password (the type the above letters verification code was tricky though 🙂 ), and even if I remove the Webroot item from add/remove programs the end user can still go and delete the webroot executable from the program files(x86)webroot directory.
Many of my end users are local admins on their machines, so I need an uninstall password on the app.
Is this built in somewhere and I am missing it? Some other way to avoid users doing this? If the executable is deleted does the web console push it back out?
Am I missing something?
