Uninstalling Check Point VPN-1/FireWall-1 NG on Windows

When you uninstall VPN-1/FireWall-1, it is recommended that you make a full system backup before you begin.

Note that it is not necessary to uninstall the software to upgrade to a new version. The installation process will take care of upgrading the software.
