Installed Unwanted Software During Patch
09/11/2016 1319 views
I use a DELL Kace K1000 system to manage Windows PC patching. I was having an issue getting a .NET package installed and opened a support ticket to see if they could help me get it fixed. The tech created a whole new patch subscription and schedule, with which he subscribed to ALL Publishers and Enabled Software installers in the Schedule. Long story short my Friday night patch schedule installed over 20 unwanted random apps (Skype, VLC, Novell Client, Safari, Citrix Receiver, Teamviewer....etc). Nothing malicious but all unwanted. So all weekend I have been trying to find an option to undo this. The KACE system has a nice Rollback feature...but alas it doesn't work for full software packages, just "Rollback supported patches". I am looking at uninstalling over 20 apps, one by one on over 150 machines. Any suggestions would be appreciated.
