I'm attempting to uninstall eTrust Antivirus silently on some PC's but I can't overcome the final hurdle of clicking 'OK' on the last two message boxes. Has anyone any ideas how I can do this ?

How do you currently perform the uninstall? Which version of eTrust AV do you have?

I'm using a batch file at the moment, the syntax is below
C:\WINNT\IsUninst.exe -f"C:\Program Files\CA\eTrust Antivirus\Uninst.isu" -c"C:\Program Files\CA\eTrust Antivirus\InoSetup.dll" /y -c

The issue I'm having is that this will uninstall the app but I can't get past the final two screens which ask the user to click OK.
I'm currently using version 7.0.139

Have you tried the following syntax:

C:\WINNT\IsUninst.exe -y -a -f"C:\Program Files\CA\eTrust Antivirus\Uninst.isu" -c"C:\Program Files\CA\eTrust Antivirus\InoSetup.dll"
