Server OS



After an emergency uninstallation of SafeGuard Easy, the message "Safeguard Subsystem is missing" appears during the start of the OS. How can this be solved?


An emergency uninstallation of SafeGuard Easy is more an emergency decryption than an uninstallation.
Therefore most program components, such as folders and shortcuts remain on the system.

Due to this fact the system still tries to start SafeGuard Easy, but will fail.

To solve this you have to completely remove SafeGuard Easy by uninstalling it via "Add/Remove Programs" in the operating system.

After this, SafeGuard Easy will be completely uninstalled and the operating system will start without message.
