I have antigen 9.0 and its using 50% of the cpu power constantly.  The customer wants me to uninstall antigen but everything im reading is for clusters and this is a stand alone svr.  Can anyone help me with how to uninstall this software from a stand alone system. and let me know what to possibly expect that might go wrong

    It's the same process as for a cluster, except you just do it on one server.  <-- antigen 9.0 w SP1 <-- Manual uninstall (no SP1)

    Just ignore the stuff about passive nodes and the cluster administrator. You still need to remove it from add/remove programs nd just double check the reguistry keys.
