Uninstall Dell EMBASSY Security Suite

Posted on 2007-10-12

I just got a new Dell OptiPlex 755.  It has EMBASSY® Trust Suite security software that isn't automatically installed, but wants you to install it.  I don't want to install it, but it looks like it must be installed before it can be uninstalled.  Can I just delete the folder?

    Make sure the TPM chip is turned off in BIOS. Then check MSCONFIG to see if the program is set to RunOnce. If it is, disable it in MSCONFIG. Let us know if that doesn't work.

    My second suggestion would be:
    Install it and than on next reboot, uninstall it.
    We have Dell Latitude (D600 line) LTs at work that come with it installed, I uninstalled mine through Add/Remove and it worked with no reoccuring problems.

    Thanks a lot!  Sorry it took so long to respond.  I thought I had my settings set to receive an email whenever I got a response, but I never received one.  I installed it, then uninstalled it and haven't had any problems so far.
