This program will uninstall Network Connect from version 6.0 - 7.5 (I guessed a little about 7.5) , Host Checker, Pulse, Secure Meeting, Terminal Services Client, WSAM, the Installer Service, and the browser helper objects. It will also clear all cache and cookies. This works for Windows only.
I find this helpful for people in the field who just cant upgrade or are having a variety of different issues. I usually post it on a public website somewhere so people can access it without being VPN'ed in.
I zipped the GoAwaySa-V2.exe and attached it. I've also added a text file showing exactly what the script does and the Wise Installer .wse script itself if there is anyone out there who still uses it.
Feedback is welcome. Kudos are nice too as I have a hungry ego.
Give this one a try.
Just to provide a little more info, I just use this on a user who was getting a hang while the Network Connect client was attempting to auto-install.
They get this error:
Please wait ... launching Network Connect
Then it would just hang and never install or connect. The same thing with host checker and other Juniper products. Running the uninstaller script and rebooting almost always fixes it for me.
I agree that would be good to have but thats not what the tool does. All the tool does is look for all the Products related to Juniper-SA. (NetConnect, Host Checker, Installer Service, Browser Objects, Cache Cleaner, etc), going back years in versions and it kicks off the provided uninstaller in a unattended manner.
I kept running into the user that had 4 versions of NetConnect installed was freezing at login. The fix was to uninstall all components and reboot. Thats basically what the tool does. I put it on a public site and when users cant get in I tell them to run it and reboot. This resolves a lot of issues.
I think Juniper should take over this effort. Symantec provides something similar for there customers, I think its called Power eraser or something.
You might want to check out RegScanner by Nirsoft. It's a great tool and makes it easy to look for references of one string. It will display all the results without having to hit F3 or F5, or whatever. Then you can batch delete.
Good Luck !
Great. Would love you hear your thoughts.
Great great tool.
But unistalling the Installer service is not what i want. that's the gateway of reinstalling the Juniper components without admin rights. is there a option to exlude this component?
Thank you - I will also be testing this in-house to check how it works.
I tried these 2 files hoping it would be a miracle but they did not work.
Maybe if there was something added to the script before it was made into an EXE to scan the entire system registry to remove every instance and registry entry of the word "juniper"
I ran it twice. Once in safe mode as admin and once more in normal login.
I should add that these computers I am fixing are on AD in a domain setting.
