Ok thank you, I found it. Will wait for an update on the issue.

I did not get a chance to uninstall EDR from endpoints. Now EDR V2 has been released and causing more issues. Uninstaller script not working for the new version.

First version of scripted had this error -

COMODO cWatch EDR Agent not installed at Endpoint reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\COMODO\EDREndpoint /va /f The operation completed successfully. [Error 3] The system cannot find the path specified: 'C:\\Program Files (x86)\\COMODO\\cWatchEDRAgent/*.*'

I edited the script to the new DIR C:\Program Files (x86)\COMODO\EdrAgentV2

V2 script gets this error -
COMODO cWatch EDR Agent not installed at Endpoint reg delete HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\Wow6432Node\COMODO\EDREndpoint /va /f The operation completed successfully. [Error 5] Access is denied: ‘C:\Program Files (x86)\COMODO\EdrAgentV2\x64\cacert.pem’
