Additional Notes

 

What Deletion Does

It only deletes files based on the specific hash requested to delete.  The sensor will also delete any copies of the hash which have already been identified by at least one of the methods listed below:

  • The hash was identified by the sensor during the background scan.
  • The hash was directly accessed after the sensor was installed.

The sensor does NOT:

  • Clean up directories
  • Clean up registry keys
  • Clean up dcom registration

To Confirm Deletion

Applications that have been deleted will appear in the Audit Log along with the Time the delete request was sent to the sensor, the IP address the request was sent from, the Administrator who sent the request, and the hash of the deleted application.
