  • Script to remove network service

    Anyone know how to script the removal of a network service? Specifically Symantec's Teefer2 Driver.

    I haven't found much on this...but maybe this can give you a starting point. It looks like the INetCfgClass on MSDN should be able to do this.

    Look at the "DeInstall" method. Again I searched for some sample scripts using INetCfg but was unable to find any.

    A batch script might be better for this...

      Yeah something along those lines but I need to be able to use it in a scripting language (preferably vbs).

        Is there a service in "services.msc" that you can just stop and disable for Teefer2?

          I guess not, as Teefer2 is not that kind of service. It's more like a protocol or a device driver. In order to create some confusion, the meaning of "service" depends on context.

          Teefer2 is part of Symantec's anti-malware stack. From the Symantec KB article:

          "The Teefer2 driver is responsible for capturing all network traffic entering or leaving a particular interface so that the packets may be passed to the personal firewall component of the SEP 11.0 client for analysis. -- Please note that it is not possible to disable the Teefer2 driver without removing SEP 11's firewall component. "

            JeremyW,

            Is it just that driver you want to get rid or the whole endpoint client?
            It looks like the manual uninstallation of the client could add a few gray hairs on any one attempting it.
            I haven't actually tried this but there is a utility CleanWipe
            that could help in the process. Again not sure if the executable supports any silent switches to make it more automatic.

              I am try to automate the removal of SEP. I came across the mention of CleanWipe in my searching. I may just contact Symantec to see if I can get the utility and see what they suggest. It seems that there's no way of doing it through a script.

              Thanks guys.

                Is SEP installed from a MSI package? If it is, one could use Msiexec.exe's uninstall switch.
