You can use Group Policy to uninstall Windows sensors by following this procedure.


  1. Click Start > Administrative Tools > Group Policy Management and go to Software Installation.
  2. In the Results pane, right-click the CB Defense Sensor application, click All Tasks, and then click Remove.
  3. In the Remove Software dialog box, select Immediately uninstall the software from users and computers and click OK.


The application is removed the next time a user logs on or restarts the computer.

Caution: The sensor does not support uninstall using Group Policy if "Require code to uninstall sensor" is enabled. See

You can also uninstall a Windows sensor by using Group Policy Software Installation > Results > Deployment; however Carbon Black does not recommend this option.
