Kaspersky Endpoint Security can be uninstalled from the command line in one of the following ways:

  • In interactive mode by using the Application Setup Wizard.
  • In silent mode. After uninstallation is started in silent mode, your involvement in the removal process is not required (silent uninstallation). To uninstall the application in silent mode, use the /s and /qn switches.

To uninstall the application in silent mode:

  1. Run the command line interpreter (cmd.exe) as an administrator.
  2. Go to the folder where the Kaspersky Endpoint Security distribution package is located.
  3. Run the following command:
    • If the removal process is not password protected:

      setup_kes.exe /s /x

      or

      msiexec.exe /x <GUID> /qn

      <GUID> is the unique ID of the application. You can find out the GUID of the application by using the following command:

      wmic product where "Name like '%Kaspersky Endpoint Security%'" get Name, IdentifyingNumber

    • If the removal process is password protected:

      setup_kes.exe /pKLLOGIN=<user name> /pKLPASSWD=<password> /s /x

      or

      msiexec.exe /x <GUID> KLLOGIN=<user name> KLPASSWD=<password> /qn

    Example:

    msiexec.exe /x {9A017278-F7F4-4DF9-A482-0B97B70DD7ED} KLLOGIN=KLAdmin KLPASSWD=!Password1 /qn
