Backup Exec VSS provider (bevssprovider.exe) unable to uninstall

Hi there,

I am dealing with a quit tricky task. I need to uninstall Backup Exec completelly. All went ok, but there is still Backup Exec VSS Provider service ("C:\Program Files\Symantec\Backup Exec\RAWS\VSS Provider\bevssprovider.exe") remaining. Do you have any idea, how to uninstall this service?

The think is, that I need to replace this Backup Exec VVS Provider with VMware VSS Provider. Of course, I tried to reinstall VMware VSS, however the Backup Exec VSS Provider ist still visible in the task manager.

Any ideas will be much appreciated!

I guess, there should be some changes in the Windows Registry? Is this right direction? But where to find out more?

Ok, the deletion of the service is quit simple "SC DELETE service_name".
