    Remove Sentinal Ranger Client without the ranger servers

    This may help anyone if they have to do what ive just had to do...

    Ive brought a very old machine with the "Ranger Client" still installed back from retiredment, as Ranger is removed from the servers they is officially no way to uninstal the clients, the FAQ says format and reimage.

    1. Delete the Ranger folder from c:\program files and delete the Rngrupdt directory from the root of the c:\.
    2. Delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Hyperion Security Software
    3. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and find the value 'shell' and change the value from 'rgrshsub.exe' to 'explorer.exe'
    4. Change 'Userinit' from 'rgrunit.exe' to 'userinit.exe'

    Just a quick update on this for anyone that comes across this problem like we did today:

    This method is confirmed to work. (Check that you disable/stop all running Ranger services in step 1, we found at least 1 additional RM service that stopped us from deleting the Ranger files)

    Local Administrator Logon.

    1. Open Computer Management. Go to the services section, find Ranger Network and Ranger Security Monitor and disable them both (Security Monitor first).
    2. Delete the Ranger folder from c:\program files and delete the Rngrupdt directory from the root of the c:\.
    3. Open registry editor. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Hyperion Security Software and delete this key.
    4. Still in registry editor. Go to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon and find the value 'shell' and change the value from 'rgrshsub.exe' to 'explorer.exe'
    5. In the same key find the value 'Userinit' and change the value from 'rgrunit.exe' to 'userinit.exe'
    6. Reboot the machine.
