How to fully uninstall eset antivirus Program from a server

We have a new client that used ESET Antivirus on their network. We installed all the workstations and installed Managed antivirus from GFI advanced monitoring agent. They also have one DC and two Member servers. I ran the uninstall on the 3 servers and restarted them.

The thing about the Advanced monitoring agent is once its installed on the server it will automatically push the install for the Managed antivirus on the server. If it sees that there is another antivirus on the machine it will not install new AV.

It seems there is still remaining debree left over on the servers of the old antivirus even though I uninstalled them.

I did look in the registry and found a folder for the ESET program under local Machine software but am a little skeptical on deleting anything from the registry manually.

Does anyone know of a removal tool for ESET that will take care of this issue for me?

Thanks!!  I ended up deleting all the ESET entries from the registry and that worked.

The uninstall tool didn't look trustworthy. Having to boot into safe mode and the chance it could reset your network settings.
