    1. Within the agent machines registry, removed any folders and/or keys related to the Protect Agent from:
      • hkey_local_machine\software\classes\installer\products\


    Note: It is highly recommended that a registry backup be created prior to altering.


    1. Once the registry entries have been removed, you may run the agent installer again.
