After installing Win7 SP1 it disable and uninstalls Forefront on random computers.  We can't re-install forefront until we remove all resude of it on the computer and of course disable UAC then we can re-install. Anyone else run into this problem.

I have not had to deal with this myself, but I had read a few things about issues when they tested the SP 1 Beta.  See if any of these links help.

Microsoft says to uninstall Forefront before installing SP1. So if you are trying to install SP1 on a Windows 7 machine that has Forefront installed, you will of course run into issues.

Over the past couple of years we have notice more and more Microsoft products not playing well with other MS products.  Thanks for the responses.  Our network cleints are based on forefront and so we had to use MOM to uninstall and reinstall.

The question was "why is SP1 uninstalling the forefront?" We were already using MOM to fix the problem prior to the question of why MS is breaking its own products.  I stated in my 1st question that we were already uninstalling and reinstalling as a solution.  Yes MS does recommend it but I could not imagine SP1 doing a uninstall of forefront.  We got it to work on a number of computers without uninstalling it.  Maybe I am complaining more than asking a question.
