Uninstall of nFront Password Filter Client removes winlgon key


nFront Password Filter Client version 4.15.1 and 4.15.2 delete the HKLM\Software\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon registry key during uninstallation.


When you install nFront Password Filter 4.15.1 or 4.15.2 it will work and operate fine.  However, if you uninstall the software it will remove the winlogon registry key and subkeys.  When the client installs it also improperly reports its version in Add/Remove Programs as version 4.14. 


To safely remove the software from the system and Add/Remove programs you can copy the following text into a batch file and run it on the client.

echo y| REG DELETE "HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows NT\CurrentVersion\Winlogon" /v GinaDLL
echo y| REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\{7054BAC2-C975-4DFA-A9B3-D4A7280A5D10}
echo y| REG DELETE HKLM\SOFTWARE\Classes\Installer\Products\2CAB4507579CAFD49A3B4D7A82A0D501
