Sentry anti cheat in Warlander

Anti-cheat, as the name suggests, is software designed to protect players from others. It allows (at least in theory) to catch cheaters. Such programs are used by many popular games, it is possible that you come into contact with them every day. In theory, this is a very beautiful vision; however, sometimes they seem to interfere a little too much with the player's computer and cause problems. A relatively recent and high-profile example of this was the case of Undecember.

Some players report that the anti-cheat used in Warlander Sentry does not close when the game is switched off, and even sends data packets to Japan (the country of origin of this software) at that time. In addition, some claim that it does not uninstall with the game and turns on with the computer. These are definitely worrying allegations.

However, on the other hand, on the Steam forum, a developer representative referred (even several times) to the situation. Some of the above-mentioned problems have indeed plagued the game during last’s year tests, but the studio has decided to take steps to eliminate them. From these statements, it appears that the anti-cheat should close with the game and should not start up with the boot. Other behavior of the software is a bug and should be reported. At the same time, it is also worth remembering that there are quite a few players who do not claim any problems with Sentry ani-cheat and say that it works fine and they have not noticed any deviations from the norm.

How to uninstall the Sentry anti cheat in Warlander

However, if you are still worried about anti-cheat and the fact that it may not uninstall itself from your computer, here is a little guide on how to do it.

  1. Uninstall Warlander.
  2. Check if the folder in this location has disappeared: C:\Program Files\SentryAntiCheat.

  4. Check that none of these files are left on your computer: ses.exe or setray.exe
  5. There is a chance that even after uninstalling anti-cheat, it will leave a trace on your device (like many other programs). If you want to get rid of it, head to the following locations: C:\Users\{your user name} \ AppData \ Local \ Packages \ Microsoft.Windows.Search_cw5n1h2txyewy \ LocalState \ AppIconCache \ 125 \ Sentry Corporation_Sentry Anti-Cheat_Sentry Anti-Cheat Tray_0 and C:\Users\{your user name} \ AppData \ Roaming \ Microsoft \ Windows \ Start Menu \ Programs \ Sentry Anti-Cheat Notification.lnk.
  6. Finally, press Windows + R and type this command: regedit.exe. Head to the location: HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\Uninstall\SentryAntiCheat
