Uninstall Check Point Endpoint Security without Uninstall Password

I found a conversation very similar to my situation.

In this case - there was no registry entry for HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\CheckPoint\Endpoint Security and adding two entries allowed the default password to be used to uninstall this software.

I'm trying to remove the software - without knowing the uninstall password - but when I check my registry I have a bunch of entries under:

HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\WOW6432Node\CheckPoint\Endpoint Security

There are UninstPwdHash & UninstPwdSalt entries along with others.

I added the suggested UninstPwdSaltDA & UninstPwdHashDA with values of 0 but I am still receiving the error of invalid password.

I'm hoping someone can help me in that I see that I can either:

  • Remove these existing values & hope the new DA values will be in effect
  • Update these existing values to 0
  • Remove the newly added DA entries - change the existing to add DA suffix to their name and set their value to 0

I'm afraid if I mess something up too bad then I may not be able to get back into my machine.

Any/all help is welcome.
