We have Kaspersky. If you installed Kaspersky Security Center, you can do it remotely for all computers from Kaspersky server.

Well, to uninstall KES and NA, you need to do it manually or from Kaspersky Security Server.
KES and NA are protected by password so you cannot uninstall them easily...

Use KSC to uninstall them and then push another software via SCCM or so.

I can only tell you this.
Create a task in KSC for uninstalling KES first. Apply it to all computers. You do this in a bulk. Than add the password to the task.
Do the same for NA.

If you need uninstall command, I need to know what version of KES and NA you use.

KES Silent uninstall: Run the command:
<Path to setup.exe>\setup.exe /s /x
Example: C:\kes 10\en\setup.exe /s /x

For versions SP1 MR4 (10.2.6.3733) and earlier:
msiexec /x {7A4192A1-84C4-4E90-A31B-B4847CA8E23A} /qn

Version SP2 (10.3.0.6294):
msiexec /x {7911E943-32CC-45D0-A29C-56E6EF762275} /qn

If your application is password-protected against unauthorized removal, run this command:
setup.exe /pKLLOGIN=<User name> /pKLPASSWD=*** /s /x

For versions SP1 MR4 (10.2.6.3733) and earlier:
msiexec.exe /x {7A4192A1-84C4-4E90-A31B-B4847CA8E23A} KLLOGIN=<User name> KLPASSWD=*** /qn

Version SP2 (10.3.0.6294):
msiexec.exe /x {7911E943-32CC-45D0-A29C-56E6EF762275} KLLOGIN=<User name> KLPASSWD=*** /qn

Network Agent:
msiexec /x {BCF4CF24-88AB-45E1-A6E6-40C8278A70C5} /qn /norestart KLPASSWD=NAPassword
OR
msiexec /x{BCF4CF24-88AB-45E1-A6E6-40C8278A70C5} /qn /norestart KLUNINSTPASSWD=NAPassword

Test both. I am not sure which one will work for your version.


This can also be scripted. So you can create a batch file for this and then push it out using SCCM
