Troubleshooting uninstallation of ERA Agent

See log files for ERA Agent.

You can uninstall ERA Agent using ESET Uninstaller or using a non-standard way (such as removing files, removing the ERA Agent service and registry entries). If there is an ESET endpoint product on the same machine, it will not be possible because of an enabled Self-Defense. You can read more about it in our Knowledgebase article.
