    2. Click QoE Settings > Manage QoE Packet Analysis Sensors.
    3. Select the node.
    4. Click Delete Sensor.
    5. Click Delete when prompted.
  2. Remove the agent directly from the node:
    1. Log in to the computer with administrative credentials.
    2. Navigate to Control Panel > Programs and Features.
    3. Select SolarWinds Agent.
    4. Click Uninstall.
    5. Follow the onscreen prompts to completely uninstall the agent.
