This command requires administrator privileges and must be executed from an elevated command prompt.

ESET does not prevent you from running commands as an administrator unless you manually create the appropriate custom HIPS rules. Does temporarily uninstalling ESET actually makes a difference and the issue returns as soon as you install the latest version with default settings?

To run commands/scripts/etc. that require admin privileges, the execution object must be started with that privilege. For example to run powercfg -h from a command prompt window, it must opened with admin privileges;

I know this is the wrong forum however I need a command line to uninstall ESET Endpoint Security from all our computers silently if possible.  I have the password.  I can manually uninstall this by going to add remove and clicking modify then uninstall and type in the password is there a way to do this without?  

We also have ESET Management Agent but this does not require a password - both of the ESET uninstall is greyed out.  

I tried to run this powershell command but this was not the way.  I then tried to double click the ecmd.exe but it just closes

$ESETPath = "C:\Program Files\ESET\ESET Security\ecmd.exe"
$Password = "your_password_here"
Start-Process -FilePath $ESETPath -ArgumentList "/Uninstall /Silent /Password:$Password" -Wait
$ESETAgentPath = "C:\Program Files\ESET\RemoteAdministrator\Agent\ecmd.exe"
Start-Process -FilePath $ESETAgentPath -ArgumentList "/Uninstall /Silent /Password:$Password" -Wait

To uninstall ESET Endpoint or agent, you'd need to run msiexec.exe and use the msi installer or provide the product code which varies with each software and version of the software. Instructions how to determine the product code are available at https://www.advancedinstaller.com/msi-retrieve-productcode.html.
