System locked down after uninstalling EMET RRS feed

  • Question

  • Hello,

    I spent my last 2 days trying to regain control of my windows 10 installation, without finding clear evidence of the probelm.

    Some policies were applied to all application, no chance of installing new sofrtware, no update of system settings, Windows component empty, no activation of boot rescue feature, chrome couldnt access its integrated pdf viewer, a lot of applications desappeared, no access to PowerShell,

    Before this accident, i had installed EMET 5.51 and did some test, and when i understood the complexity and risky changes it could make, i uninstalled immediately

    Reading the kind of strategies it uses, i understand that the system was left locked-down with a Global Group Policy and/or AppLocker. WIthout any chance or reinstalling EMET. WIthout any tool to query or manage the controlling tool.

    And NOWHERE i found traces or logs of what was appening

    I even wasn-t able to revert to a previous restore point!!!

  • I'd recommend reinstalling EMET, then going through the configuration options to turn off all protections, then uninstall again.
