Run SysInspector Script

The Run SysInspector Script task is used to remove unwanted objects from the system. A SysInspector Script needs to be exported from ESET SysInspector before using this task. After you export the script, you can mark objects you want to remove and run the script with the modified data - the marked objects will be deleted.


The task runs only on ESET Endpoint for Windows version 9.0 and earlier. The task will fail on ESET Endpoint for Windows version 9.1 and later.
