OS Firewall Data

Recommended Posts

Hi,

 

Speccy indicates the Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro 4.0 is still installed on my old XP desktop after being removed years ago. I've searched the registry and removed numerous leftover pieces/junk referring to Agnitum and Outpost Firewall Pro none of which is apparently the Key (pun intended) Speccy uses to extract this data.

 

Anybody have a clue where it gets this info?

 

Thanks: DES

have you also checked the AppData and Program Files folders?

Hadn't prior as this kind of stuff is taken on as housecleaning after uninstall. But did anyway again just in case, with no leftover results anywhere. This why I started with the registry. Then went through an older embedded Winapps.ini for CCleaner just to see if Agnitum or Outpost Firewall Pro was in there? Nope. But hummm... there is a CCleaner super extender, CCEnhancer I stopped using long ago, with many more apps included I could check too. Thanks for reminding me about that!

try running CC with the /EXPORT switch, some documentation can be found here; http://www.piriform....line-parameters

 

it'll create a winapp.ini file that will detail where it is finding references to those programs you mention.

Did you search the registry manually for outpost, agnitum, and maybe feedback

 

I mention feedback because from time to time Outpost creates a file called Feedback.zip.

 

Be careful.  As you probably know, messing with the registry is dangerous.

This is the best/correct place to start

I posted this question over on the Agnitum Outpost Firewall Pro forum and was pointed to a cleanup utility they have (Clean.exe) for removing installations in addition to using the WIndows Add/Remove Programs. It needs to be run from Safe Mode, but got rid of whatever hidden entries where ever they may be. I certainly couldn't find it. Speccy now indicates the Windows firewall is Enabled as in fact.

An interesting find over over at the Outpost Forum.  

I will also need the remover file sooner or later, I use Outpost Firewall.  

So thanks for posting your results.
