Cannot get uninstalled software to stop showing in SCCM query



Recommended Posts

I cannot get an uninstalled program to stop showing in SCCM query.  I've:
Uninstalled it.  
Run a script to remove the registry settings
Deleted the program folder.
Run Hardware and Software Inventory Cycles from the Workstation clients

The program is still showing up in my query against the program name.

I need to remove this from the SCCM report ASAP because of an audit. (It was accidentally added to one of the gold images, even though it's not been used in 10 years.)

Force a full inventory to occur on the client.

Thanks...

Dumb question - Is that different than the client Hardware and Software inventories that I kicked off on the clients?  If so, how do I kick off a "full" inventoy

It is the same. if you have the right click tools installed, you can use it to force a hardware and software inventory.  I believe it forces a full inventory.

hardware inventory is rather fast
software inventory takes a while as it scans a LOT of files.

I did run both from right click tools on Thursday and again on Friday.  Am I just being too impatient?

Yes, it is more than just click it on the client. 

You should never use SW inventory, it is useless. It depends on what right click tool you have but some allow you to force a full inventory.
