Check Point files and Registry Keys still exist on machine after complete uninstall
Note: Check Point strongly recommends that you backup your registry before implementing the below procedure.
- Run regedit to open a registry and find the following:
> check point
> media encryption (If this blade/software was installed)
Note: Run a search several times to find all registry entries
- Delete these entries.
- After deleting all of the Registry Keys, remove them from the Recycle Bin and reboot the machine.
Note: If you do not delete them from the Recycle Bin, Windows will insert the keys back into the Registry. If you do not reboot, you cannot delete the remaining Check Point Folders and subfolders.
- When the machine boots back, locate the Check Point folders in Program Files or Program Files (x86) for x64 bit machine, ProgramData, and in the Common Files folder.
- After deleting these folders, empty the Recycle Bin and reboot the machine again.
Note: This article should not be relevant to newer versions. Uninstall should remove the files created.
