Most people considering bringing in Forefront Client Security (FCS) into their current environments already have a current AV solution in place. If you have a large environment, its not a simple task to get all the old AV software removed from the client machines. You have to remove the old AV software because you can’t have two AV solutions running on the same machine, and the FCS client is an AV/AM solution.
The Microsoft Open Source Portal, CodePlex (www.codeplex.com) includes a series of scripts that you can use to remove the old AV software from your client machines in order to prepare them for your Forefront Client Security rollout.
Check out http://www.codeplex.com/fcscompete for more information on these scripts and enter a discussion on their use and maintenance.
