FCS keeps reinstalling RRS feed

  • Question

  • We recently tried the demo version of Forefront Client Security.  We plan on switching to Forefront, however we are going to wait for two months until we are no longer under contract with our current antivirus provider.  I have uninstalled the FCS, Antimalware, and MOM component from the 2 test machines. The problem is they keep reinstalling themselves via windows update.  We have checked our WSUS and it is set to not accept forefront client updates.  Where else would this be coming from?  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

  • How did you deploy the FCS client?  Is there a GPO, SCCM or anything configured to deploy FCS client?  Also, do you still have the GPO configured to update the FCS definition?

  • I believe we used the Server Security Management Console to initially deploy the client security to the two machines.  We were evaluating the impact of the scan as compared to our current antivirus.  The server that this resided on has since been reformatted and does not have Server Security Management Console.  I double checked that no GPO exists.
